4.2.21 If an employee applies for partnership but leaves before you have completed your action, you must honour the agreement and pay any outstanding contributions for the period the account runs from and to. In cases where someone has left your employment and has been taken off your payroll before you have had time to set up their account, your payroll must:

  • action the account with the application form and pay the age-related contribution,
  • ask the member to pay their contribution direct to the pension provider, and
  • check with the provider that the member has done so.

Your payroll must also find out the amount the member has paid so that they (payroll) can pay any outstanding matching contributions.
