    P45 sent to the wrong address 8th May 18 at 7:33 PM
    Hi everybody.

    My mother retired from her job end of March and since then has been waiting for her P45 to come in the post but recently she found out her P45 was sent to her address where we lived 9 years ago and since then moved three or four times!! Anyway, I went there a couple of times to try and get the letter but nobody answered the door. Now, she cant claim her full pension s and she doesn't know what to do because employers only give one copy. I don't know what to do.

    What exactly does she need the P45 for?

    There are situations where it would be helpful to have the P45 but long term it usually isn't that critical.

    What type of pension does she believe it is causing issues with?

    She needs to supply P45 along with other documentation.

    It's for Pension Credit. She has to supply proof of ID, copy of her contract, P60 and her P45.

    Another thing is, she probably will be moving back to Poland in the next 1-2 years and she will be required to have P45 to claim pension in Poland.

    She won't have a P45 and P60 for the same job for the same tax year, it's one or the other.

    If you Google pension credit application form PC1 you will be to read the explanatory notes and what you should do if you don't have certain documents.

    You don't have to supply a P45 to start drawing a pension, whether private or state. Explain the circumstances - and get a letter from her former employer confirming that the form was issued but sent to an out of date address (are you certain she gave them details each time she moved?). The letter should also confirm the information given on the P45. She might have the wrong tax code initially but as we are in a new tax year it really shouldn't be an issue for long, if at all.

    As for pension credit - ring on 0800 99 1234 and explain the position.

    No need to worry about returning to Poland without a P45. 'Provide the relevant P45 (issued by employer) and P60 (final tax declaration) documents from the UK. If this is not possible, then you should precisely detail the addresses of past employers and working dates as well as providing your UK National Insurance Number.'
