I am paying Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) or Shared Cost AVCs (SCAVCs) which started on or after 1 April 2014
If you are absent from work due to:
- sickness or injury, on reduced contractual or no pay, or
- relevant child related leave, or
- reserve forces service leave
you can continue to make payments in respect of any such AVC or SCAVC contracts.
If you are paying AVCs for extra life cover you should arrange to continue with these payments throughout your leave or cover may cease.
Where necessary, your employer will contact you about making the relevant contributions.
