Pension payslips

We no longer issue monthly pension payslips. If you’re receiving a pension from the Sainsbury’s Pension Scheme, you’ll get an annual payslip in March each year which shows all the relevant pay dates for the next 13 pay periods. If your pension changes by more than £5 (for example, because HMRC told us about a tax code change for you), we will issue you with a paper payslip in the month it changes.


A P60 is a form you get every year, showing how much tax you’ve paid on your Sainsbury’s pension. We’ll send you a paper P60 in June each year. If you have another pension in another scheme, their administrator will also send you a P60.

If you think you’re paying too much tax, you’ll have to contact the Tax Office direct. The Tax Office that deals with the Sainsbury’s Pension Scheme (Sainsbury's Section) is:

District: Chapel Wharf Area
Reference: 663/SP

The Sainsbury Veterans Welfare Scheme is a registered charity (number 1125046) set up to provide financial support to Sainsbury’s Veterans who have limited savings (currently less than £22,500) and are in need. In addition, Veterans’ spouses and partners can also apply for grants (even if widowed). These groups are given priority to receive grants, but all former Sainsbury’s employees will be considered, even if they don’t qualify as Veterans.

Grants of up to £4,000 are available to help with the purchase of essential items that assist with independent living at home.

The most common items requested by our Veterans are:

  • walk-in showers
  • stairlifts
  • rise & recline chairs and beds; and
  • mobility scooters or rollators.

Grants are also available for respite care and convalescence when medically recommended. The full details of the Scheme and application forms are available on the Veterans website: www.sainsburysveterans.co.uk

You can also request details from Regional Chairs and Local Associations, or from HR Services Admin (Telephone: 0161 605 6520; Email: veteran.support@sainsburys.co.uk).

The trustees are indebted to the Sainsbury family trusts for their continued and valuable support and also to Sainsbury plc for its commitment to support the Scheme.
