The request was successful.

Dear Child Maintenance Service,

The DWP aim to increase saving for, and security in, later life and deliver efficiently to reduce costs and increase efficiency.

I am aware of two different systems in place one for most people who can invest up to 100% of their income into a pension and another system operated by the CMS where paying parents rights to do so are removed.

As a paying parent under CMS I would like to have the method of calculation that is adopted by the CMS in this case to determine my maximum legal pension contribution in line with the DWP aims and to allow myself and others to be informed and manage our own finances effectively

Yours faithfully,

Mr L Cole
