Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs)

If you wish to make contributions in excess of 6% of your basic salary into your CRISP account, you can do so by means of making AVCs.  AVCs will not be matched by your employer.

AVCs will be made via 'Smarter Pensions' unless you have opted out of 'Smarter Pensions' or payment of AVCs takes you below the National Minimum Wage or Primary Threshold in which case AVCs will be deducted from the pay you receive through the 'deduction from pay' method.

If you wish to stop or start AVC contributions then you should email
