From October 2016, we are changing the way that we administer payments to our pensioners. In an effort to make the administration of pension payments as efficient as possible, the Payroll facility for pensioners will now be processed using Altair Payroll, the same software we use to administer pensions for our active and deferred members. As a result, you will see a few changes to the way you are paid.
Your pension payments were previously processed using a payroll system separate to our pension administration software and this required a transfer of information between the two systems. Altair Payroll is part of the Altair pension administration software that we already use to administer your pension.
Using Altair Payroll means that we now have an integrated process for the administration and payment of pensions which does not require a transfer of information between different systems. This integrated approach will make us more efficient in processing your pension payments as well as save taxpayers money.
You may have a query about your new payslip or a letter you may have received in the post in regards to the Payroll changes. We recommend you consult our Frequently asked questions page.
