How much can I pay into BRASS?

You can pay as little as £2 a week or £10 a month. Ask your employer​ if you want to know the maximum amount you can pay in.  Network Rail members: Please see your BRASS guide for details.

The most you can contribute each tax year is the higher of either:

  • 15% of your gross pay, minus your normal Scheme contributions; or
  • 20% of your pensionable pay plus pensionable Restructuring Premiums if you have them, minus your normal Scheme contributions.
​ Join, change or top up your BRASS now.

Want to contribute more?

You can top up your regular payments to the maximum allowed with a single amount at any time. ​Use the BRASS Payroll Deduction Form to help you work out your​ limit.

If you go over the maximum and still want to pay more, you can apply to join AVC Extra(excludes Network Rail members).
