Manage contributions

How do I mark a member as Employer duties are being fulfilled elsewhere by entering information onto the website?

On your NEST home page click either ‘Contributions’ or ‘Manage contributions’.

Click the ‘Edit/Pay’ arrow for the contribution schedule that includes the relevant member or members.

Click ‘Options’ under Contribution options for the relevant member.

Select ‘No further contributions payable’ from the drop-down menu. Once you’ve selected this enter the pensionable earnings and contribution amounts and click ‘Done’.

If you’ve completed the schedule and you’re happy to continue, you can submit the schedule by clicking ‘Make payment’. You’ll need to click ‘Make payment’ for the information to be processed even if you’re not making a payment for this schedule. The member will not be marked as ‘No further contributions payable’ until the schedule has been submitted.

If you’re submitting your contribution information by file upload, you’ll need to select reason ‘1’ into the Reason for partial or non-payment of contributions field. This tells us that no further contributions are payable for the member.

If you’ve marked a member as ‘No further contributions payable’ you’ll need to enrol the member into NEST again if you start using NEST for their contributions in the future.
