How would I know if I’ve sent contributions across to NOW: Pensions on a “year to date” basis?

Year to date earnings would be significantly higher than the monthly contributions that you normally submit. You may notice this:

1. On uploading a file

2. On receipt of a direct debit confirmation email

3. On receipt of an email from NOW: Pensions advising you of an unusual or fluctuating contribution

It is important that you check your files for year to date contributions before they are sent to NOW: Pensions.
