Tax position

Members receive tax relief on the following benefits payable from the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority pension scheme:

  • retirement lump sum
  • death benefit lump sums
  • member’s contributions to a United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority pension arrangement (i.e. the final salary scheme, AVC or Shift Pay Pension Plan) receive tax relief provided your contributions fall within limits set by the HMRC.

Pensions are treated as earned income and are therefore taxed under the PAYE system. See Tax Queries for further information.
