How do I work out what my pay reference period (PRP) date should be?

The first pay reference period will be the first time pension contributions are deducted after the employer’s staging date/duties start date or postponed staging date/duties start date.

For example, where the employer’s staging date/duties start date is 1 June, if an employee is paid on 25 June for a calendar monthly payroll, it would be the period beginning 1 June and we would need details of the payment made in that period (i.e. on 25 June).


See The Pension Regulator   for more information.
