2019/20 Pensions annual allowance charge compensation policy: New 2nd application window for GPs

As a GP your application form for the 2019/20 Pension Annual Allowance Charge Compensation Policy will need to be endorsed by Primary Care Support England (PCSE) before it can be processed by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA).

PCSE is accepting forms for endorsement in application windows. The next application window will open on the 2 August 2021 and will close on the 1 October 2021. We will share more information about how you should submit your form to PCSE nearer the time. As the next application window is after the mandatory scheme pays election deadline for 2019/20 closes on the 31 July 2021 you must make sure that you have submitted a scheme pays election before this deadline.

Visit the NHSBSA annual allowance webpage now to download a scheme pays election form. You must return your scheme pays election form to the NHSBSA before 31 July 2021.

If you have recently retired and were advised to submit your application for the 2019/20 Pension Annual Allowance Charge Compensation Policy in March 2021 but were unable to do so, you will still be able to submit your application when the next application window opens in August 2021.

If you have any queries about when you can apply and how your application form will be endorsed by PCSE, please visit the PCSE website for more information or contact the PCSE Customer Support Centre.
