Frequently asked questions
Queries for each employer can be displayed by ticking the checkbox next to the employer name in the left-hand panel and assigned to you, or a team member, using the reassign process detailed in the ‘Accessing your query’ section above. If you have access to a large amount of employers, or there are a large number of queries, we would recommend just selecting one employer at a time.
All users with access to the employer will be able to see the query whilst it is assigned to the employer. Once reassigned to a user, only the user that it is assigned to can access the query.
Yes, if a query has been reassigned to you in error, you can either reassign this back to the employer group or to another user.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to export queries from the UPM employer portal.
If you have any questions relating to the query or queries, please respond to the query with your question or query in the free text box. This will be picked up by LPPA and responded to via the work feed. This will also be the case if LPPA have any further questions following your response.
Employers can currently only open and respond to queries associated with active members of the pension scheme. We are currently updating the portal to enable you to also resolve queries associated with deferred and retired members – we will inform you when this has been completed.
