Any period of unpaid leave will not count as Pensionable Service unless, when you return to work, you agree to pay the contributions which would have been due from you for that period as if you had continued to be paid. If you are participating in Smart Pensions, the contributions will be equal to your notional contributions. You will need to apply to the Scheme administrator and have this agreed within three months of your return to work. Contact details for the administrator can be found in the Contacts section of this website.
If you are on paid maternity, paternity or adoption leave, you will continue to pay contributions on the Pensionable Salary you are receiving and that period will count as Pensionable Service.
