Monthly LGPS contribution payments

How and when to make payments to Oxfordshire County Council Pension Fund (OCCPF).

Employers must ensure all the employee and employer contributions, including any monthly deficit payments, due to the Oxfordshire County Council Pension Fund, are banked and payments cleared within 19 days of the end of the month the contributions were deducted. These contributions include all main scheme and 50/50 employee  contributions and any additional contributions payable from employee and employer. (not including Prudential AVC contributions).

It is essential that the investment team receive all supporting paperwork for any payment to the fund.

If your authority pays any compensatory elements of pension, you should include details of these payments with this return. We will inform you of any changes to the compensation pension. You should expect something each April, to coincide with pensions increase.

The administering authority has the power to impose a fine to any employer not making payment of the contributions within the 19-day period.

You should send the monthly return by email to pension.contributions@oxfordshire.gov.uk.

If you decide to pay by BACS, a  copy of the monthly return must arrive with the Pension Investment Team to coincide with the payment being sent. This will enable the Pension Investment Team to allocate the contributions appropriately. Contact pension.contributions@oxfordshire.gov.uk  for details of the fund’s bank account. 

Payments by cheque  should be made payable to Oxfordshire County Council Pension Fund and sent with the monthly return to:

Any questions on contribution returns should be directed to pension investment.
