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.
