Employer Forms

The following employer template forms have been designed to be completed digitally on a PC/tablet and uploaded to i-Connect:

N.B. Norfolk County Council HR/Payroll staff send forms internally by email to PenDocs and not via i-Connect. The Member Leaving Scheme form (L45) and Request for Estimate of Benefits form (MISC89) are only sent from Payroll staff due to the financial information that needs to be completed.

The following template documents can be completed by scheme members either digitally on a PC/tablet or printed out and completed in ink. They can also be uploaded to i-Connect by employers:

For more information about i-Connect please contact the Technical Services Team - telephone 01603 222132, email [email protected].

Employers should normally provide new employees with a copy of the Norfolk Pension Fund joiner pack.

During the current Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, some employers are finding it difficult to issue the pack to new staff members. However, the pack items can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
