Important information: Transfer and divorce estimate requests

Firefighters Pensioner Members who are paid their pension in advance (on the first of the month, for that month) may have been contacted by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) notifying them of a change in their tax code, due to being in receipt of more than one pension. This may be incorrect, if you are not in receipt of more than one pension.

This is due to an error that occurred in the reporting (Real Time Information) to HMRC to let them know that Capita would no longer be paying the pension. This data has now been resubmitted to HMRC, which they have confirmed receipt of and should now resolve the issue. You do not need to take any further action.

Note this may take a couple of days for an individual’s record to be updated by HMRC.
