Your circumstances can change at any time. This could mean that you need, or choose, to stop paying into your pension.
You don’t have to remain a member of your pension scheme and can stop paying contributions at any time. Remember that your employer will also stop paying into it too.
If you stop paying contributions, or leave your employer, you’re treated as having left their workplace pension scheme.
What you’ve built up remains yours, and you have various options.
It’s worth being aware that if you leave the scheme, you might lose other benefits – for example, life cover.
