Payment of pension
- Your pension is paid directly into your bank or building society account by BACS (Bank Automated Clearing System).
- Unfortunately payments cannot be made into a Post Office account
- There is no facility to pay new pensioners into an overseas bank account.
When your pension starts, we will send you pay slips for the first three months.
After that, a pay slip will be sent to you in March, April, May and June of each year.
If you have a query on the receipt of your pension please contact us
**** If you are under 55 and have retired on ill health grounds please visit our News section for an update on your April 2019 pension increase ****
Changing your bank details for payment of pension
If you change your bank/building society account, you will need to inform the HR/PAY department so that we can continue to pay your monthly pension to you. For security reasons, this information cannot be taken over the telephone, or by e-mail, as your signature is required.
Please note payments cannot be made into a Post Office account or into an overseas bank account.
To notify us of a change of bank / building society account details, you should complete and submit the Change of Bank Details for the Payment of Pension Form.
Do I pay tax on the pension I receive?
Initially when we set up your pension payment HMRC require us to put you on 0T tax code, which means that tax will be deducted at 20%.
We advise the Tax Office that your pension has started and in turn they advise us of the correct tax code for you, taking into account your personal tax position.
Employer's Tax Reference
This is the Authority’s tax reference for all pensioners, and you should quote it on all correspondence with HMRC (Tax Office).
Our Audit requirements are that Nottinghamshire County Council LGPS pensioners are to complete an annual life certificate. This is to verify that the pensioner is still entitled to a pension and that the correct address is held on our system.
