Tax code queries

If you have any queries with your tax code or think that you are being taxed incorrectly, please contact the Tax Office on 0300 200 3300, or +44 135 5359022 if you are calling from outside the UK. 

Change of address or bank details – keep us updated

If you move house or change your bank details, please formally advise UK Pension Operations in writing. You can also do this online at My Online Pension - click to register. Alternatively you can complete the form found on the back of your payslip and return it to the address shown. 

To guarantee your change of address or bank account is made in time for the next pay day, please ensure we receive your instruction at least two weeks in advance of your next pay date. If your instruction is received after the payroll has closed, your request will not be actioned until the following month.

It’s important to note that as an anti-fraud measure, the Trustees operate a returned post policy. This is in place to ensure Scheme pensions are paid to the rightful person. If your address is not correct on our records, and post issued from the Scheme is returned to us, then the Trustees will seek to confirm your last known address by writing to you by registered post to verify this. If the letter issued is also returned, then your Scheme pension will be suspended immediately; and a commercial trace by Target Professional Services (a third party agency who provide a tracing service on the Trustees’ behalf) will be carried out to establish your whereabouts.
