NHS Pensions and Migrating to Australia
A life in Australia can be very appealing: the relaxed lifestyle along with the surf, sun and sand. After a few years in the NHS you start to builda significant pension and as a nurse, doctor and other healthcare professional, this may be a significant issue.
You may have been advised that when you leave the UK your benefits are frozen and should be left where they are until you retire at which time you can then apply for a pension which will hopefully continue to be indexed to inflation.
The UK Pension System
In the UK, when you retire, you can access up to 25% of your accumulated pension funds as a tax free lump sum but you will then pay tax on your pension income for the rest of your life and will not be able to access any further funds should the need arise.
On your death, your spouse will receive a 50% pension till his or her death at which time the remaining benefits are absorbed back into the scheme leaving nothing to be passed onto your children.
The Australian Pension System
The Australian pension system is much more flexible than the UK’s. You could, if you wanted to, take out 100% of your pension as a lump sum on retirement. Although you could it is unlikely that you would, as you receive your pension tax free. You can also access additional lump sums from time to time which in retirement will still be tax free.
On your death 100% of the benefit is passed to your spouse tax free. Likewise on their death 100% of the benefit is passed onto your children tax free.
If you migrate to Australia your options could include:
- Transferring your accumulated NHS pension benefits to an Australian Superannuation fund
- A living a tax retirement as well as having the benefits to pass on to children after your death
There will be some instances where the benefits of leaving the funds in the UK will exceed the benefits of transferring but there are still numerous risks attached to such an outcome, currency fluctuations being a major one.
