I opted out of my SERPS pension about 10 years ago, but would like to know if it is possible to contract back in. I read something online about contracting back in but cant seem to find anything now and not sure what to do. Who would I contact to get the right information and to try and contract back in?

    I did the same a while back so don’t worry you can go back to it but to be honest it’s more important to have a private pension than the meager state pension

    Not sure about this one, because they have no changed the SERPS to State 2nd Pension so would they theoretically be able to contract you back in…….. not sure……….probably best to seek professional financial advice……
