Monthly Data Collection

Teachers’ Pensions has implemented Monthly Data Collection (MDC) for providing service and contribution information. This provides significant benefits to the Scheme, employers and members.

  • All new employers are automatically on-boarded to MDC
  • MDC supports you as employers and/or payroll providers to fulfil your responsibilities.
  • It allows you to provide service and salary information to Teachers’ Pensions on a monthly basis, as opposed to the Annual Return.

The benefits of MDC

MDC provides multiple benefits to both employers and members. These include:

  • Real time accurate information for your members (service is more up to date), reducing member queries to employers
  • Easy to submit – Teachers’ Pensions require minimal data fields making administration easy
  • Employers no longer need to complete new starter templates (TR6), leaver templates (TR8) or missing service templates (TR28)
  • Employers and members no longer need to complete Certificates of Re-employment in most cases. You’ll be notified where a certificate is required
  • It creates fewer service errors for both Teachers’ Pensions and employers.
