From CEO Wakefield

I am writing to invite you to take part in a survey that will help us understand our members’ views on local government and the local services in your area.

Ahead of the local elections that will be held in some councils across England on Tuesday 3rd May, NARPO has been working closely with our partners in Later Life Ambitions to understand the local services and issues that matter most to our members.

These elections are politically important and will have an impact on the many services that local councils run on a day to day basis. Although local elections aren’t taking place in all local authorities, this is still an opportunity to tell us about the issues affecting your local area.

The survey consists of a brief series of questions about the local government services in your area, and it can be completed in only a few minutes. We can assure that your evidence will be dealt with in confidence, and your details will be anonymised.

Please find the survey online here.


Kind Regards,

This may be useful to some members (perhaps newly retired who are seeking a part time job).  I have been with Bairstow Eves in Beeston since I retired 14 years ago and I have found the role of an ‘accompanied viewer’  both enjoyable and rewarding.

I have been in contact with Keir, they inform me they are using the codes issued to them in March by HMRC.

Before contacting Keir please check on your recent pension advice that Keir are using the same code that your were notified by HMRC.

To obtain your code you can contact HMRC direct on 0300 200 3300 using your unique reference from your pension advice should start 507/*******.

If HMRC tax code is different to the one on your pension advice request that HMRC notify Keir of the correct coding and an adjustment will be made on next months pension

If you were notified by electronic means of your Code you will need to log onto the government gateway with your own unique reference.

Please do not contact Keir direct they cannot make any adjustment they have to wait notification from HMRC before any adjustment is made.

I have just received the following email, sadly it is one of a number and I do not see how Kier has got it so wrong this month.

“I’ve just received my April pension advice from Kier and on checking found the tax code used did not match that of the HMRC notification I received in March. I’d already checked to make sure the HMRC code was correct for my income. I called HMRC who confirmed that the had notified Kier of my correct tax code and are going to contact them again so that Kier can correct my code and tax deductions in Mays pension. With the incorrect code Kier have used I’d be paying too little tax and could have ended up with a tax bill in the future. I don’t know if the mistake by Kier to my tax coding is something that affects just me of whether it might affect other police pensioners so this is a message for all to check their HMRC tax notification against that used by Kier so as to stop others from underpaying tax or even overpaying.”

It made be that you have paid too much tax or too little you need to check
