The Countdown Bulletins provide important guidance and updates to pension scheme administrators about the end of contracting-out.

Although contracting-out came to an end in April 2016, schemes are still submitting termination and transfer notices with end dates on or after 6 April 2016.

The National Insurance Services to Pensions Industry (NISPI) countdown bulletins provide additional guidance for pension scheme administrators to enable them to make sure all individuals contracted out pension rights are secured correctly.

Countdown bulletin 46 has updates on:

  • Scheme Financial Reconciliation
  • Scheme Financial Allocations
  • problems accessing Shared Workspace
