Payments made to the pension provider
Typically your employer is responsible for deducting contributions from your salary and paying those and any contributions they make to your scheme or pot. There are rules to make sure that your employer does this and within a reasonable amount of time.
Contributions deducted from your salary should be paid to the pension provider by the 19th of the following month from which they were collected from pay or the 22nd of the following month if contributions are paid electronically to the pension provider.
This requirement appears in the Pensions Act 1995 and it also features in the Pension Regulator’s code of practice.
