You may or may not be aware that for pension calculation purposes, Teachers Pensions use annual salary figures taken from March onwards, and not from September. I left my full time post with a TLR in December 2009, then did a few days' to scale supply on basic salary (ie no TLR) in early March 2010. The LEA used my old full time payroll number for the supply work, so by March it appeared my salary was basic only, but I'd done 9 months full time on a TLR during that tax year. Imagine my surprise when I contact TP about an unrelated query and am told that my salary figure for the whole of 2009-10 is recorded as basic only, based on data provided by my employing LEA. I am currently in the process of querying this with the LEA Payroll Dept, as I don't see why a few days' supply should wipe out 9 months on a TLR when it comes to calculating my final salary for pension and lump sum purposes. Like many, my last year of full time was my highest paid year. I'd suggest anyone in a similar position double checks exactly what salary figures TP have for your most recent years of full time work, especially if you've done any supply between resigning and March.
