TUPE transfers

TUPE- The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment)

Participating WMPF employers must ensure that, in line with Government measures, pension rights are protected when employees' employment changes as a result of a job transfer.

Please see below for TUPE guidance document to determine when a leaver notification should be submitted via the Portal (when a member is subject to a TUPE transfer).


  • Following a TUPE transfer (within the WMPF) participating scheme members will retain one pension record that reflects two periods of membership (former employer and new employer). Initially, members will be given the option not to amalgamate these records following receipt of a revised membership certificate that confirms a transfer of employment. If an election to keep these periods of membership separate (non-amalgamation) is made, the Fund will apply the required changes and request the relevant leaver/joiner notifications.
  • At the date of transfer, where the member has a total period of membership of less than two years, amalgamation is automatic and an election to keep separate pension records cannot be made.    
  • Where you have changed your payroll provider, no leaver/joiner notifications are required, unless members' employment circumstances have changed.
