Public Sector Pension Lump Sums

These are currently tax free . . . Easy tax lump sums.

Why the contribution is important

The money will stay in the scheme and be paid out slowly.

    Or cap them at an affordable level.

    "You can retain a tax free maximum lump sum of £30,000" - I am trying to recall but I think I read that the average lump sum payment was about £80,000. This is being paid out of a fund that will have no money left in it very shortly.

    That way you limit what is being paid out and you don't heavily penalise the 'foot soldiers'.

    The foot soldier would not be penalised at all, they just take their money monthly minus tax.
