Make a one-off payment


You can elect to pay a one-off (AVC) payment into your pension up to a maximum of 4 times in a year.

You can choose to do this through payroll, for example when you are due to be paid your bonus, and benefit from tax relief at source.

Alternatively you can make a gross payment directly via Standard Life and claim back the tax relief yourself from HM Revenue and Customs.

Please note: one-off Contributions do not qualify for SMART Pay.

If you'd like to make a one-off contribution, there are two ways you can do this:

  • You can make the one-off contribution by payroll deduction (return your form to Centrica People Services) 
  • You can make the payment direct to the Plan (return your form to Standard Life).

Please complete your selection on the CSP AVC application form (PDF, 496KB) and depending on the option you choose return to either Centrica People Services or Standard Life.

You'll need to allow at least four weeks’ notice to make a one-off contribution to your pension - and it's worth checking the Government payment limit (PDF, 190KB). You can also look at your annual benefits statement for more information on this.
