Part time members can work extra hours, which will increase their annualised pay. This can cause the member to move into a different pensionable earnings band. This must be treated as an in-year change to pay.

Employers must change the member’s contribution rate. This must be changed from the next payroll period following the change in hours.

Read more information and view examples in the Payroll Provider Requirements.

These changes were decided the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).
