Pensions and Tax
This page tells you about your pension and tax.
Paying into your Pension
The majority of members can choose to pay pension contributions up to the equivalent of their salary and get tax relief on those contributions. However, there are two main controls on the amount of tax-free pension savings a person can have - An Annual Allowance (AA) and a Lifetime Allowance (LTA).
Getting your pension
When you start receiving your pension, it will be taxed in the same way as your salary, with income tax deducted at source by Civil Service Pensions. You do not pay National Insurance contributions on your pension.
