Please make sure all new joiners are included in the monthly submission for the month that they join. In WMPF, one pension record is required for each position a member holds, so it is conceivable that a member may have more than one active record in the scheme. In these cases, you must ensure that each post has its own, unique, payroll reference number. For further information on the process and what additional information is required for joiners please refer to our excelfile icon File Layout - Monthly Data Submissions [33kb]

Bulk Joiners: These files are for new members of staff (who have not previously been notified to us via the monthly submission file due to omission or error), not members of staff who are subject to TUPE transfer.
