UK Pay: RTI - Full Payment Submission Process (FPS) 2018/19 Error: If Flexible Drawdown is present, Serious Ill Health Lump Sum Indicator must be present for assignment (Doc ID 2391501.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 17, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (UK) - Version 12.1 HRMS RUP10 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Problem Statement:
Flexible Drawdown Pension Payments cause FPS Serious Ill Health Lump Sum Errors

User ran payroll for April 18. For employees who are in receipt of Flexible Drawdown pension payments the following error message is reported on the 18/19 FPS:

If Flexible Drawdown is present, Serious Ill Health Lump Sum Indicator must be present for assignment xxxxx

The element processed has the classification:
Flexible Drawdown Taxable Payments

In the RTI Information EIT, the clients have the following settings:
Number of Periods Covered = 1
Normal Hours Band (Pre April 2014) = Other
Flexibly Accessing Pension Rights = Yes
Retain Flexibly Accessing Pension = Yes
Pension Death Benefit Indicator = No
Retain Pension Death Benefit = [blank]
Serious Health Lump Sum Indicator = [blank]
Retain Serious Ill Health Lump Sum Indicator = [blank]

The payments being made do not relate to Serious Ill Health Lump Sums so should not have the indicator entered as "Yes" - it should be blank.

However, the FPS errors unless this indicator is set to "Yes" meaning that we are forced to send incorrect information to HMRC on the FPS. The validation appears to be wrong for this.

Steps to Reproduce
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1.Add Flexible Drawdown Taxable/Non Taxable Payments to the assignment element entry.
2. Navigate to Assignment Extra Information. Set Flexibly Accessing Pension Rights to Yes
      Set Serious Ill Health Lump Sum to No/Blank. Set Pension Death Benefit Indicator to No/Blank
3. Run Payroll, Prepayment and FUll Payment Submission 2018-19
