Annual Allowance

As a member of a Police Pension Scheme you are benefiting from tax relief on the pension savings you build up each year. However, the Government sets a limit on how much tax relief you may have and this is known as the Annual Allowance (AA). The AA is currently £40,000 2020/21.

Please see the factsheet below for further information.

(Please note that if you have the maximum 30 years service then please contact us directly to request a calculation)
