Definitions for "AVCs"
Additional voluntary contributions (AVCs) are extra amounts of money which you may choose to save in order to enhance the pension you will receive on retirement. If you are in a company pension scheme, it may be that the amount of money being saved for your retirement is less than you would like. By making extra contributions, you can effectively boost your pot of money and income in retirement.
Additional Voluntary Contribution Scheme
Additional Voluntary Contributions. This is a method you can use to top up your pension. You pay additional contributions to a pension provider – this should then build up to a fund. When you retire, you use your fund to buy an annuity – a pension for life – which is on top of your Civil Service pension. See Your choice... topping up your pension benefits. [ Back to A to Z list
