Independent School Pensions - Employer contributions?

    Does anyone with a pension scheme, other than with the TPS, know how their 'new' schemes calculate their employer contribution?

    I.e. Is it a fixed amount or % of the salary, or do any of them base the calculation on the employee contribution?

    The Aviva scheme, which seems to be very popular, calculates employer contribution as a percentage of salary - in the illustrations I've seen it's been set at the 16.4% that TPS was using until September, although there's nothing to stop the employer changing that. In principle there's nothing to stop a school "matching" employee contributions up to a certain level, but I haven't heard of any going down that route.

    Ours is 16.4% for now...to sweeten the blow.
    However some is taken as admin, but I can't remember how much.

    Ours will put 8.4% into the pension the remaining 8% of the previous 16.4% will be available to be taken as 'a pay rise' (their words not mine) or to be paid in to the pension pot.
