We are excited to announce that the Plumbers’ Industry Scheme is upgrading its administration system. This will make the process for submitting pension contribution data easier for you.

Please read the sections below for instructions and information, if you have any questions please contact us. We appreciate your support in improving the monthly pension contribution submission process.

Phase 1

1 Oct 2017 – 31 Jan 2018

The upgrade requires monthly pension contribution data to be provided in a different way in future.

You will be required to fill out the above spreadsheet each month for all employees in the pension scheme. The spreadsheet MUST be password protected and returned to info@plumbingpensions.co.uk by the 19th of the following month. If you need help on how to password protect the spreadsheet, you can find instructions here.

We have filled out the first line as an example to help you see what information you need to send us.

You will note there is a column titled “Payroll/Works Number”. This information is required for the new system. If your employees do not have a Payroll/Works Number, please contact us.
If you have already send us your monthly pension contribution data electronically, you will notice the only change is the addition of the Payroll/Works Number.

It is important that you use the above Excel template going forward to submit details of your monthly contributions, this will replace the P10 card you have used in previous months.

For future months, we will confirm receipt of pension contribution payment via email.

Thank you for your help. This change will help you and the Scheme process monthly pension contributions more efficiently.

If you have any questions or need assistance in using or filling out the template place call the Administration Team on 0131 556 9090.

You can find a copy of the flyer sent out in October here.
