ECON

Where an employer elects that their employees are contracted out of the State Earnings Related Pension Scheme (SERPS) they will be allocated an Employer Contracted Out Number (ECON)

Normally an employer is allocated one ECON per employer reference. In certain circumstances, such as a company take over, an employer may find they have payroll responsibilities for more than one ECON.

Where this is the case, employers should quote the ECON which the majority of the employees are under and then provide details of the employees who are under the other ECON to the National Insurance Services to the Industry Group (NISPI) (This content has been withheld because of exemptions in the Freedom of Information Act 2000)
