Document Can I decide to stop and later restart paying Early Retirement Reduction Buy Out (ERRBO) additional contributions?

Not routinely. However an Early Retirement Reduction Buy Out (ERRBO) agreement can be suspended on hardship grounds only for up to one year. If the additional contributions are not restarted within one year the agreement is terminated and you cannot subsequently take out a further agreement. We will tell you when you must restart paying additional contributions to avoid termination of the agreement.
More than one period of suspension is permitted providing the ERRBO contributions are paid for at least one further Scheme year after resumption.
If you wish to terminate or suspend your ERRBO contract you must put this in writing outlining your request and the reason for this. Send your request to:

NHS Pensions
PO Box 2269
