Reminder: teachers’ pension employer contribution grant supplementary fund

A reminder that the window for mainstream Primary and Secondary Schools and Academies to submit their actual pensions costs if they wish to make claim for supplementary funding closes on Friday 17 January 2020.

Claims from mainstream schools and academies will not be accepted after that date.

Supplementary funding is payable where the increase in those employer teachers’ pension costs exceeds the amount of the pensions grant by more than 0.05% of total budget.

You can submit a claim online

Guidance notes on completing the form and more details about the supplementary fund are available.

The claim is based on your November pay bill. The ESFA have recognised that some institutions may have difficulty in separating out back pay from the November pay bill. The ESFA have confirmed the December pay bill can be used to adjust the November pension contribution figure entered in the claim form so that it only relates to the contributions for teachers in post at the time of the November pay bill.

If you have any questions about this message, please contact the ESFA
