    1. Who is this for?

      This form is for members of a Defined Benefit section of the Plan, who wish to change or start paying Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs).

      If you are a member of the Money Purchase 2003 (MP03) Section or Auto Enrolment (AE) Section, please visit Pearson Benefits - This link opens in a new browser window to make this application.

      Before deciding to make an AVC payment we recommend that you check your Annual Allowance and Lifetime Allowance limits. These limits determine if there may be an additional tax charge payable.

      When you submit the form, it will be sent to Pearson People Services (PPS) to be actioned. Changes cannot be made part way through the month and if your form is received after payroll cut off (normally around 5th of the month), the change will not be actioned until the following month.
