Pension input periods (PIPs)

This is the formal term for the start and end dates for each period your pension contributions are measured against the annual allowance (the limit to how much you can save into your pension and get tax relief on).

They may be referred to on your annual pension statements, (or with The People’s Pension you can just check your monthly contributions in your Online Account).

Since April 2016, the pension input period must run with the tax year – 6 April to 5 April.
