Prudential AVCs

 Prudential working in partnership with the Scottish Teachers' Pension Scheme

Prudential is the appointed provider of Teachers’ Additional Voluntary Contributions (Teachers’ AVCs) to the Scottish Teachers’ Pension Scheme.  Prudential has been chosen by the Secretary of State.

Teachers’ AVCs are set out in regulation and are an integral part of the benefits offered to members to provide extra benefits in retirement. They are invested, so the value can go down as well as up and members could get back less than they put in.

Keeping  your staff informed

It’s important your staff are regularly reminded of how they can improve their pension benefits.

Prudential can support your staff by providing information about their pension scheme and the options available to increase pension benefits,  including Teachers’ AVCs through:

  • Face-to-face seminars

  • Individual meetings

  • Variety of workplace communications.

Find out more about how Prudential can help you by visiting  Alternatively, contact Robert Stormonth,  your dedicated Client Manager on 01236 763486 or at

You can raise awareness of Teachers’ AVC s with your staff by sharing Prudential’s leaflet by email or through your staff newsletter or intranet. You can find this leaflet at
