Making a Voluntary Contribution

Making Voluntary contribution banner

Voluntary Contributions (VCs) are additional contributions that can be made alongside the mandatory contributions remitted by your employer to your Retirement Savings Account (RSA). To make voluntary contributions, all you need to do is inform your employer to make the necessary deductions from your monthly salary. It’s that easy. Our RSA Calculator can also guide you on how much you can remit as VC
