What data is required

The data required for MCR will be similar to that previously required but with additional data items. This will enable us to perform contribution reconciliation to a member level.

The data must be supplied for all employees that are determined by you as being eligible to be a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.

This would include*:

  • Full-time and part-time eligible employees that have a permanent contract of employment, casual contracts of employment or temporary contracts of employment
  • All eligible employees that are paying contributions into the Scheme
  • All eligible employees that aren’t paying contributions into the Scheme (Opted-Out, etc).

*for more scenarios please read the Membership section in the User Guide (PDF, 1.6 MB). (This link opens in a new window). File name: MCR_A4_User Guide_Full_Version" target="_blank" class=" focusable">Membership section in the User Guide (PDF, 1.6 MB) (This link opens in a new window).

For the initial three months of on-boarding (Data Assurance Stage) your data will be uploaded onto the live system and therefore member records will be updated with the information you provide.

Once you've successfully completed this stage, you’ll be classed as LIVE.

To find out more about the Data Assurance stage please read the MCR On-boarding Guide.
