Notifiable events: How to notify
Notifications can be made in writing or online using Exchange.
The minimum information that should be included in a notification is:
- a description of the notifiable event;
- the date of the event;
- the name of the pension scheme;
- the name of the employer; and
- the name, position and contact details of the notifier.
Information that would also be useful is:
- the address of the pension scheme;
- the name and address of the main trustee contact;
- the pension scheme registration number;
- the name and address of the main employer contact;
- the employer’s current trading status; and
- the name of any controlling company or group to which the employer belongs.
The Pensions Regulator's preference is to be notified quickly, rather than for there to be a delay in confirming whether an event has occurred; whether the exceptions apply; or in obtaining all the information which would be useful.
