What If I have a service break?

What happens to your DC Section Contributions will depend on the circumstances of the service break.

The Members’ Booklet provides more detail about service breaks and the DC Section.

Family Leave

During paid Family Leave, your Contributions will continue and will be based upon your actual earnings during that time. Any Matching Credits and Extra Credits on those Contributions will continue to be made.

Approved unpaid leave

In a period of absence for which you do not receive Pensionable Pay, you should contact the Administration Team if you are thinking about making Contributions.
