Q How are days out recorded on the Benefit Statement?

A

Where your employer has included excluded days in their record of your service and salary, this will be mirrored on the Benefit Statement. However, if you are part-time and your employer has provided your actual part-time pensionable earnings days excluded will be shown as nil. This is because Teachers' Pensions will use the actual earnings to determine your pension benefits so there is no need to refer to days excluded for our calculations.

Q I've recently joined the career average arrangement, but the service on the statement is all final salary - is this wrong?

A

Unless your employer is part of the Monthly Data Collection trial, we'll receive data on your service and salary from your employer once each year, (usually between April and July), and update your record at that time.


If you are a tapered member, we'll not expect to receive your details of service and salary until July of the following year. Employers can sometimes be late in submitting details or there can be validation problems that take a while to rectify. If this has happened, you can expect to see Career Average service to appear on your record as and when we receive it.
