A deferred or pensioner member is part of emergency staffing; how does this affect their pension benefits?

Deferred and pensioner Scheme members who return to work in Local Government or are offered contracts of employment with the NHS as emergency staff will have access to the appropriate pension scheme e.g. LGPS (NI) Scheme for Local Government and the NHS Scheme for the NHS. If they are issued with an NHS Voluntary Agreement, it does not constitute an employment contract and they will not have access to the NHS pension scheme.
