How does it work?

We’ll compare your previous month’s MDC submission with a list of members we’ve deemed as being in ‘Active Employment’ with your establishment within that month.

A member with ‘Active Employment’ is identified by finding the last service record for your establishment on our records where:-

  • The member had not Transferred Out or received a Repayment of Contributions
  • The member is not Retired, is in Re-employment or has taken Phased retirement
  • The last service record does not contain a ‘Withdrawal’ indicator
  • The ‘Date From’ of the last service record falls on or after the start date of the previous full Scheme year before 6th September, prior to the 1st day of the month being checked. Please see example below:

    1st of Month: 01/09/2018
    Previous 6th September: 06/09/2017
    Start of Previous Full Scheme Year: 01/04/2016

If we’ve not received the service information for a member in ‘Active Employment’ with your establishment, they’ll be output on the checklist file for you to investigate.
