    You pay contributions towards the cost of your pension benefits. These are set as a percentage of your 'pensionable pay'. If you are ineligible for ill-health benefits you will pay contributions at a reduced rate.

    In PPS, members' contributions meet about a third of the estimated cost of providing pensions and other benefits (the remaining cost being met by employers' contributions and central government).
