Check your Annual Allowance online

The Annual Allowance is the amount by which the value of your pension benefits may increase in any one year without you having to pay a tax charge.

The HMRC has set up an online Annual Allowance calculator so that pension scheme members can check:

  • how much annual allowance they have used
  • if they have an annual allowance charge to pay
  • if they have any unused pension annual allowances to carry forward

The annual allowance calculator is available on the GOV.UK website at

General information for members about the Annual Allowance (and Lifetime Allowance) can be found at our Tax & your pension benefits page
