An error on file upload states Already In Qualifying Scheme. What does this mean?

This error will appear if contributions are on the file for an employee who has this status.

We don’t allow contributions to be paid for an employee who is already in an alternative qualifying scheme to The People’s Pension.


The status Already In Qualifying Scheme should only be used when an employee is in another qualifying pension scheme (as opposed to being in The People’s Pension) but still requires another of our products i.e. EAC/ELC (accident and life cover products from B&CE).

Employees without any other products with us shouldn’t be on the file.
