You can pay in more to the Scheme to buy more benefits when you retire. This is known as Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs).

There are two different types of AVCs:

  • Money Purchase AVCs (MPAVCs)
  • Added Years

The AVC Guide explains all you need to know about the different types and about paying more. There are some risks associated with AVCs so please read the guide carefully before you make any decisions.

The AVC application form is available here

There are some limits to how much you can pay into your pension every year.  Check the Tax allowances to find out more.
