MEMBERS ON UNPAID LEAVE OF

Members who go on unpaid leave of
absence are required to continue making
contributions to the Scheme (i.e. 30% of

Those members of staff on unpaid leave

AVCs are not subject to the requirement of “1/3rd
lumpsum and 2/3rd”].
 Members wishing to make AVCs should write a letter
to the Finance Officer, stating the amount to be
deducted, and giving a copy of the letter to the
Scheme Administrator.
