How do I let you know a member has left employment using my online account?

Video: Make sure you let Nest know when an employee leaves your organisation.

When a member leaves your employment you need to tell NEST through a contribution schedule that covers their last earnings period, also known as pay period. You’ll need to pay the contributions that are due for that member.

When you inform us that the member has left your employment, we’ll then remove them from future contribution schedules. If you don’t tell us the member has left, we’ll be expecting their usual contribution and you may receive a late payment notice.

To mark the member as a leaver, click ‘Manage contributions’ or ‘Contributions’ from your NEST home page.

Click ‘Edit/Pay’ arrow on the schedule that covers the date the member left your employment.

Click ‘Options’ for the member that you want to mark as a leaver.

In the Contribution options for this period drop-down menu, please select ‘No further contributions payable’.

If the member has left at the start of the pay period, also known as  earnings period, there may not be any contributions due. If they’ve left close to the end of the pay period, it’s likely there’ll be some contributions you’ll need to pay for them. You’ll then need to enter the pensionable earnings for the member and click ‘Done’.

If you’ve completed the schedule and you’re happy to continue, you can submit the schedule by clicking ‘Submit schedule’, 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.
