Document What is the scheme contracted out number (SCON) for the NHS Pension Scheme?

The scheme contracted out number (SCON) is S2730000B.

HMRC have confirmed that if you are using the temporary SCON of S2769999P or your software is defaulting to this temporary SCON, then your payroll submissions for the 2015/16 tax year will be rejected and will have to be resubmitted showing the correct SCON.

If you have already obtained the correct SCON and you are receiving contact from HMRC advising that you are using the temporary SCON, you will need to contact your payroll software provider to check that you are providing the correct SCON in all relevant fields.
