Can I pay more?

If you want to make additional pension savings to increase your pension benefits when you retire, there are two ways to do so. These are additional voluntary contributions (AVCs) and additional pension contributions (APCs).

Please make sure, if you're thinking about making additional pension contributions, you don't go over the annual allowance and lifetime allowance tax limits. For more information visit the page on tax and pension benefits.

For more information about AVCs and APCs, please have a look at our 'Topping up your pension' and AVCs guides which can be found under 'Related Documents'.
