Salary Sacrifice Shared Cost AVCs

24 February 2022

If you are a member of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), you have been able to build up your pension benefits for retirement by paying Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) with a tax-free deduction through payroll. 

We’re working with AVC Wise to introduce a salary sacrifice Shared Cost AVC scheme which allows members of the LGPS to make even more cost-efficient retirement savings alongside their LGPS pension by saving on National Insurance contributions in addition to tax savings.

From 14 March 2022, members of the LGPS will be invited to access our secure shared cost AVC platform for information and resources. In the meantime, you can find out more about the scheme on the Our Derbyshire website or attend one of the webinars run by AVC Wise.

To book on one of the webinars, please go to the AVC website. You’ll need to register and then use the events tab to view the available presentations and select the one you wish to attend. AVC Wise will confirm your place
