    Personal information

    You can choose to make Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) either monthly and/or as a single payment. Please note: AVCs may only be deducted via payroll (cheque payments are not accepted).

    Monthly payment


    Please note, changes cannot be made part way through the month and if PPS receive your form after payroll cut off (normally around 5th of the month), the change will not be actioned until the following month.

    Single payment

    If you wish to make a large non-regular contribution which exceeds your gross monthly pay, you will need to spread this over more than one month.

    Please note that before deciding to make/amend AVCs we would recommend that you check your Annual Allowance and Lifetime Allowance limits. You can find further information about the Annual Allowance and the Lifetime Allowance on the My Contributions page or the HMRC website - This link opens in a new browser window

    Investment selection

    Unless you have previously self selected your AVCs funds, your contributions will be automatically invested in the cash lifecycle option. If you do not wish to remain in the cash lifecycle option you can select alternative funds by logging onto Aviva’s secure online portal, MyWorkplace - This link opens in a new browser window.
