Additional voluntary contributions (AVCs) allow you to boost your LGPS benefits by paying in additional contributions each month, aside from your regular monthly contribution. You can pay up to 100% of your pensionable pay into an 'in-house' AVC plan in each job where you pay into the LGPS. Your contribution will be taken out of your next available pay period, before tax, once your election has been accepted.

Our ‘in-house’ provider is Prudential. You can find out more information on AVCs by visiting their website. Please note, there is a link to their website in the 'Related Links' box.
