If you were paying Final Salary AVCs and you’ve chosen to carry on paying them, you will have earned more service. After each 31 March, we add in any extra service you've earned to your pre-2016 pensionable service and recalculate your Final Salary benefits. So the benefit you get will be based on your salary on 31 March 2016, although the contributions you pay will depend on your current salary.
You can cancel your AVC whenever you like – simply speak to your employer. This will mean you’ll only receive the benefits you’d built up. This is also the case if your AVCs stop because of early retirement or you decide to leave USS.
Once you’ve cancelled your AVC, you won’t be able to restart it – so please think about this carefully first.
