You can opt to pay less in the 50:50 Section

You can choose to pay half your normal contribution for half the amount of pension. This is called the 50:50 Section, which allows you to keep paying into the Scheme when things are difficult financially.

This is designed to be a short term option, meaning that you'll be re-enrolled into the Main Section automatically at your next ‘auto re-enrolment’ date (this will occur at some point within 3 years of joining the 50:50 Section).

Following re-enrolment, you can then make a further election to rejoin the 50:50 Section. See our Glossary page for more information about auto-enrolment.

Your ill health and death benefits will remain unchanged.

To join the 50:50 Section of the Scheme please complete and return our 50:50 Section form.
