File upload

One of the ways employee data can be submitted online to The People’s Pension. An employer’s file needs to contain details of the employees joining the Scheme (Type 1 – employees who must be put into a pension scheme and Type 2 – employees who don’t need to be put into a pension scheme but can ask to join) and those already in the Scheme, plus the amount of contributions to be paid for each employee.

The employee data will usually be uploaded to the admin account by the admin account contact, or another party who’s been granted access to the admin account eg a business adviser (accountant, bookkeeper or payroll professional).

The admin account contacts should ensure they’re familiar with the file upload process. Visit our resource library for more information. Admin account contacts can run the system in training mode beforehand to get familiar with the process of uploading employee data.
