Locum GP? Watch out for the new pension trap


The nhs pension scheme has become a toxic mess. I had to get out as I was paying 28% of my income to it and then paying more tax on the ‘pension growth’ that’s real tax on imaginary income. Worst news is that there will be no one left in this Ponzi schemeby the time I retire, and I don’t trust the government to ever let me draw the money that I’ve put in over 30 years. Bad news for Locum s and salaried but I’m paying their employers contribution for them as well!
