Managing employer and member contributions

These pages are for employer use only. Member information can be found on the home page.

As a scheme employer, you must decide each members’ contribution rate. You should be consistent and reasonable when making these decisions.

Your responsibilities are to make sure that:

  • The right member contribution band is used
  • The right employer contributions are paid
  • Contributions are collected on actual pensionable pay
  • Additional pension contributions are collected, and paid to the right organisation
  • Members have the option to pay contributions for periods of absence or parental leave (maternity, adoption or paternity)
  • Pension contributions are paid to the fund as soon as possible after collection
