    Paying into DC Pension when drawing DB Pension 16th Mar 17 at 7:56 PM
    Can you pay more than 4k into a DC pension via salary sacrifice whilst drawing a DB Pension?
    Or are you limited to paying in 4k max only if you are drawing pension from a DC type pension?

    Appreciate some clarification from you.
