HMRC Protection Certificate ?

Just downloaded pension form 8 today. Do I need to supply a copy of the protection Certificate, I don't receive any other pensions .

The protection certificate is something applied for by people with pretty big pension savings before either 6 April 2006 (when Pension Tax Simplification was introduced) or 2010-ish when the Life Time Allowance (introduced in April 2006) was reduced.

Most of us would not need to claim protection from the 2006 LTA or its reduction, so most of us just answer 'no' to the questions about protection certificates. If you had needed one or applied for it, you would have remembered and you would have received a certificate to record the protection.
