Updating your bank account details.

You can update your UK or overseas bank details by contacting the Pensions Administration Team in writing.  If you change your bank account, we need the new details before the 10th of the month for the change to take effect in time for the next payment.

Tax on your pension.

Your pension is taxable income, so you may have to pay tax on it depending on your personal allowance and other income you may be receiving. If you’re living overseas, you may still have to pay UK tax on your pension. You can find more information on the GOV.UK website.

You can contact the Scheme's tax office if you have any queries about the tax paid on your pension.

The reference you should use when referring to the Scheme is 951/BMP.

Payslips and P60s.

You’ll get monthly pension payslips and a P60 at the end of the tax year confirming the pension you have received and the tax you have paid.

Payslips and P60s are all provided on the Portal unless you’ve opted for paper communications. If you’ve not used the Portal before and need help, go to Manage my pension online.

Paper payslips are only sent out if your pension changes by £10.00 or more and you’ve requested to receive paper communications.

You can contact the Pensions Payroll Team if you have any queries about your payslips.
