Teachers' Pensions

MDC and your Payroll Provider

writing with a fountain pen

In the first instance we recommend that any Payroll Provider or Software Supplier interested in providing a solution for MDC, contacts our on-boarding team by calling 0345 3003756 or emailing MDC@teacherspensions.co.uk.

When a Payroll Provider on-boards to MDC, we create a new Establishment Number which allows them to log in and submit one file for all the employers they provide payroll for. Part of the process to activate a Payroll Provider is linking all employers for whom they’ll provide data, to their new establishment number. To allow us to do this we need a completed activation form, which confirms the employers they’ll be providing the data for.

There are two ways to provide data to Teachers’ Pensions – you can create a bespoke solution in line with our specification or use our MDC template, located in the Employer Portal. If you're interested in taking part in the next phase, please contact us on 0345 3003756 or by emailing MDC@teacherspensions.co.uk.

Please ensure you share the MDC Technical Specification which can be found here with your Payroll Provider or Software Supplier.
