Audience: This Notice will be of particular interest to:

  • All Finance Managers and their payroll providers

Action: Ensure that your PCSPS contributions are paid to the new bank account

Timing: Immediate

  1. The purpose of this EPN is to advise all employers that it is necessary to review their current method of payments to the scheme. As a result of the changes to the Government Banking Service, the PCSPS will be changing their bank account details. The new account will be effective from 1st April and therefore contributions payable after this date should be made into the new accounts. However any payments due for the period before this date (ie any contributions deducted from your March 2010 payroll) should be paid to the current bank account.
  2. Employers who currently pay their monthly contributions by cheque may continue to do so without change. Employers who currently pay their monthly contributions by CHAPs or BACS should ensure that the new account details, as shown below, are used. Employers who currently pay their monthly contributions by RFT can pay by internal transfer if they also have an account with Citi Bank.
  3. The new account details are as follows:

Account GBS RE CO Civil Superannuation

Sort Code 08-33-00

Account number 12528800
