Opting out of pension on maternity leave

Discussion in 'Pregnancy' started by lauraflora, Apr 30, 2012.

  1. I was wondering if anyone else has done this or is thinking about doing this. I'm 33 weeks and I've been on maternity leave 2 weeks now. Really worried about money and need to squeeze out every penny I can so thought about opting out of the pension while I'm on maternity leave and then opting back in when I'm back at work. Is it worth it and is it a hassle to do?
  2. Hmmm that's interesting....I've made contact with the pension scheme to see about opting out for the time I'm off but didnt realise you get full credit without paying the full wedge.
    Need to think about this again[​IMG]

    Don't opt out without checking the thread about it on pay and conditions.
