Why have I received a pension form?
All NHS practices are required to pay pension contributions to their locum GPs if they claim it. Sole trader doctors you have booked through Lantum (formerly Network Locum) are employed directly by you, the practice, which means you may owe them a pension contribution.
To find out more about pension contributions, here is a guide from the BMA.
If a doctor has claimed pension on a job, you will receive a pension form with the invoice. The invoice will show you a breakdown of the pension contributions.
What do I do with a pension form?
- Once you have received a pension form, you need to print off the form and fill in the part 2 of the document. The form has been pre filled, so all you need to do is sign and stamp Part 2, which looks like this screenshot below:
- Once the form has been filled, the original copy must be posted to the doctor. You can find the doctor's address by going to your 'Billing' page then clicking the 'Pensions' tab and you will see 'Locum address' column.
It is important to send the original copy to the doctor as the NHS local area team will only authorise original pension forms.
Please do post the pension form as soon as possible, as the doctor has just 10 weeks from when the job was worked to submit any pension forms to their local area team.
