I am paying Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) or Shared Cost AVCs which started before 1 April 2014
If you are absent from work due to
- sickness or injury, or
- relevant child related leave, or
- authorised leave of absence, or
- a trade dispute, or
- reserve forces service leave
then 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.
