Important update for practitioners and GP practices regarding pension administration

Dear Colleague,

Annual end of year pension administration

Annual pension forms should be available to download from the NHS Pensions website from early January 2019.

As part of the requirements of the NHS Pension Scheme Regulations, GPs need to return their GP Provider Annual Certificate of Pensionable Income or the Type 2 Medical Practitioner Self-Assessment form to PCSE within 11 months of pension year end; i.e. by 28 February. It is a legal requirement for GPs to complete and submit these documents each year.

Important: If practitioners do not submit pension documentation for any one year it will result in an incomplete pension record which may affect Annual Benefit Statements (Total Reward Statements), Annual Allowance statements, etc.

If there is an incomplete pension record, practitioners will be contacted directly by PCSE. Further information can be found in the admin letter attachment above.
