2019/20 Pensions Annual Allowance Charge Compensation Policy

Our next window for applications forms to be submitted for endorsement will open on 2 August 2021 and as a result we’re not currently accepting forms at this time.

As a GP your application form for the 2019/20 Pension Annual Allowance Charge Compensation Policy will need to be endorsed by PCSE before it can be processed by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA).

PCSE is going to be accepting forms for endorsement in application windows.  The next application window will open on the 2 August 2021 and will close on the 1 October 2021. We will share more information about how you should submit your form to PCSE nearer the time.  As the next application window is after the mandatory scheme pays election deadline for 2019/20 closes on the 31 July 2021 you must make sure that you have submitted a scheme pays election before this deadline.

Visit the NHSBSA annual allowance webpage now to download a scheme pays election form. You must return your scheme pays election form to the NHSBSA before 31 July 2021.

If you have recently retired and were advised to submit your application for the 2019/20 Pension Annual Allowance Charge Compensation Policy in March 2021 but were unable to do so, you will still be able to submit your application when the next application window opens on 2 August.
