Can an employee pay more into the pension pot than their employer?

If an employee wishes to make additional voluntary contributions to their pension pot they should contact their HR department or payroll department to advise them that they wish to do so. When the next payroll information is uploaded to NOW: Pensions, the new contribution will be held within that file for NOW: Pensions to invest.

An employee can either increase their contribution by a set percentage or they can make an ad hoc contribution. It is important that all contributions go through the payroll.
