BHS in administration information for employees

The Insolvency Service

There are special arrangements for employees who have been dismissed following BHS entering administration. You might be entitled to redundancy and other contractual payments from the National Insurance Fund. These payments are subject to legal limits on the amount paid.

Payments are administered by the Redundancy Payments Service in the Insolvency Service and become a debt in the administration.

The administrator will provide details of how to make your online claim. We aim to pay 95% of eligible claims within 6 weeks of receiving the necessary information from you.

The Redundancy Payment Service can also pay both employee pension contributions and employer contributions, within specified legal limits. Claims are lodged by pension trustees, so you do not need to make an application for this. The cost of these payments is also met from the National Insurance Fund.

We cannot make payments to self-employed contractors or agency workers.
