End of year data

Each year you must provide us with details of the pension contributions paid by each of your employees who were members of the scheme at any time in that financial year.

The Systems Development Team will write to you at the beginning of each year to request each member’s current working hours and full-time equivalent pensionable salary as at the previous 31 March along with the data we need for the career average revalued earnings (CARE) pension benefits if not already provided.

A template will also be provided to ensure we obtain the necessary information which is used to provide the members Annual Benefit Statements.

For more information on the process, please contact the Systems Development Team.
