Lifetime allowance pension scheme administrator look-up service

21 September 2017

The lifetime allowance pension scheme administrator look-up service has now gone live on the GOV.UK website.

There has been a small delay in the delivery of the look-up service; HMRC had hoped to launch it in early summer.

However, it is now up and running and pension scheme administrators can use the look-up service to check the lifetime allowance protection status of their members.

To use this service, members will need to give their pension scheme administrators their protection notification number and their scheme administrator reference number. Both of these reference numbers can be found through their personal tax accounts.

GOV.UK guidance has been updated to reflect the introduction of the service - Pension administrators: check your member's protection status.
