Step 3

How much and how often?

You can choose to pay for the extra pension either by making regular monthly contributions through your salary or by making a one off lump sum through your salary or direct to WYPF. If you make your payment direct to WYPF you will need to make your own arrangements to claim the tax relief.

The left side of the box is for Regular payments only. The right side of the box is for Lump sum payments only.

Step 3.1

Regular monthly payments

Enter how much extra pension you would like to buy in Q.5(a) up to a maximum of £6,755 or enter the monthly payment you would like to make in Q.5(b) – this must be more than £10 per month or £2.50 per week, if you are already buying additional pension this will be deducted from the maximum you can buy. When you have chosen how much click “Get Results”


Lump sum payment

Enter how much extra pension you would like to buy in Q.8(a) up to a maximum of £6,755 or enter the monthly payment you would like to make in Q.8(b). If you are paying the lump sum direct to WYPF select “direct” if you are paying via your salary select “payroll” in Q.9.
