 You should have your National Insurance number to hand when you make your call.

It is normal practice that when your pension commences, it will be taxed at an emergency rate until HMRC are in a position to provide us with the correct tax code applicable. Any queries regarding this should be directed to HMRC Telephone 0300 200 3300.
