How do I let you know a member is on family leave?

To tell us that a member is on family leave, click ‘Manage contributions’ from your Nest home page. Select the arrow under Edit/Pay next to the contribution schedule you intend to use.

You can search the member by entering their Last name, NI number or Alt.ID. Once you’ve found the member click ‘Options’.

Select the option ‘Member is on family leave’ from the drop-down box next to Contribution options for this period.

If the employer contributions are based on a different pay to the member contributions, you'll need to enter the pensionable earnings in the respective boxes. If the member’s pay is the same for both, you can enter the same amount in the employer and member pensionable earnings boxes. If you’re not making a payment, you’ll need to enter zeroes in each of these fields.

Click ‘Done’ when you’ve finished adding the details for the member. This will validate the member in the schedule.

Once you’ve entered the contribution information for all members in the schedule and their status appears as Member validated, you can click ‘Save changes’ and then ‘Submit schedule’.
