Pension members tax code issue

In March we let you know that some members receiving a pension from the Fund may have had their tax code changed in error.

HMRC have confirmed they’re in the process of resolving the matter. The correct tax codes are starting to be issued and will be applied to members pensions.

Once your tax code has been corrected with HMRC, they will reimburse you any overpaid tax either through your pension or as a one-off payment depending on your personal circumstances.
