Earlier this year (2022), we started to move a number of pension funds over to our new administration system, Universal Pensions Management (UPM). During the implementation process, we are calling this Project PACE. So, please keep an eye out for updates.Scroll Down
We have taken a phased approach to implementation and grouped them by pension fund. Phase 1 is now live and we are currently rolling out Phase 2.
Phase 2: Brent, Cumbria, Cumbria Fire, Havering, Lancashire, Lancashire Fire, Lancashire Police, Merseyside Fire, Newham.
Training and support materials will be provided for the new system.
Please be aware, on the new UPM system we will be moving to monthly returns for all employers (some are already submitting on a monthly basis). We are expecting the actual data requested to remain the same, but the format and submission process will change. We will provide more details of these changes to Phase 2 employers and payroll providers over the next few weeks.
Important Payroll Information Required
Back in August 2021, we wrote to our Phase 1 employers asking them to complete a questionnaire regarding their payroll arrangements. This information is critical to the transition process, so a big thank you to all those who responded.
