Changes Affecting Scheme Members
These pages are for employer use only. Member information can be found on the home page.
It is important that all changes affecting a scheme member are referred to the pensions team as soon as possible. Any changes not documented could have a significant effect on the eventual benefits payable, or cause a delay in payment.
You need to tell us when:
The following changes to employee’s circumstances must be notified on form PEN001 and sent to pensions services:
- change of name
- change of National Insurance number
- change of marital status
- change of address
- change of email address
- change in contribution rate (i.e. change of band)
The following changes to employee’s working conditions must be notified on form PEN002 and sent to pension services:
- increase in hours
- decrease in hours
- change in working year – this would normally apply where salary is based on less than a full year as in the case of term time employees.
Pensions and divorce
If a scheme member approaches you for details about their pension in relation to divorce proceedings, please ask them to contact pensions services directly on 01743 252130 where a divorce scheme guide can be requested.
