TPECG supplementary fund update


The teachers’ pension employer contribution grant (TPECG) supplementary fund claim process went live for mainstream schools and academies on Monday 2 December 2019.

Early feedback received suggests that some institutions may have difficulty in separating out back pay from the November pay bill.

If it is helpful in overcoming this issue, the December pay bill can be used to adjust the November pension contribution figure entered in the claim form so that it only relates to the contributions for teachers in post at the time of the November pay bill.


Claims will still need to be submitted by the closing date of 17 January 2020.
