Contribution options

Your contribution options

When you join the Centrica Savings Plan, you will pay a minimum amount set by Centrica. You can usually pay as much as you like above the minimum set by Centrica - up to the Government-defined payment limits. Contributions above the government limits will result in a tax charge.

And remember, when you pay more, Centrica may pay more into your Plan too, as shown below.

The amount Centrica will pay is based on which section of the Plan you are a member of - find out more about the sections that are available below. You can check MyPension Hub to see which section you're a member of or eligible to join.

Change your contributions

Keep up to date with your contributions and find out how you can change the amount that you're paying.


Your pension is normally a long term investment and you usually can't withdraw money until the age of 55 (may be subject to change). As with any investment, the value can go down as well as up and may be worth less than what was paid in.
