If I am a member of two NHS pension schemes, which Normal Retirement Date applies for free Extended Benefit Rights?

So long as you have fully and permanently retired from clinical practice, where you have two or more NHS pensions, we will take the earliest of the Normal Retirement Dates (eg. If one pension scheme has a Normal Retirement Date of 60 and another has one of 65, we would take 60.)
