Questions re pension payments

    Hi all,

    A few quick questions;
    • Do you get a monthly pension slip - like a pay slip? If so is it paper or via email?
    • Is tax taken off at source - like PAYE?
    • Do you receive an annual statement for tax purposes?
    They might be obvious questions/answers but have no experience of this!

    Yes - but will only pay tax if you earn more than your personal tax allowance.
    Yes - TPS send an email saying you can download the P60 from their site

    In fact I've just received my reminder to access my P60 online. Otherwise I have no 'paper record' other than my bank records.

    Every month the payslip is online for you to access in your TPS account and save or print if you want. Your tax code will be applied to this first if you are under state pension age so it works just as with PAYE except you don’t pay national insurance on pension income. It might take a couple of months to sort out as you have to send in your P45 but as we’re at the beginning of a new tax year it shouldn’t make too much difference. Any useful news items about things like future pension increases are also available through the pension website.

    Lara, you should have payslips available there too. If you can access your P60s the payslips are near to those.

    Thank you @Sundaytrekker - I was thinking there must be some monthly slip. Otherwise how will you know how much pension you've received and how much tax has been paid each month? (I will definitely be paying tax because I'll have a good pension).
