Can I con­trib­ute more to GEPF?

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

I am an em­ployee in a state hospi­tal. I am a mem­ber of the Gov­ern­ment Em­ploy­ees Pen­sion Fund (GEPF) and of a re­tire­ment annuity (RA) fund. Can I in­crease my con­tri­bu­tion to the GEPF? If so, by how much? Will the ad­di­tional con­tri­bu­tion be tax-de­ductible? If so, do I have to claim for it separately, as I do for my RA con­tri­bu­tions? If I can­not in­crease my GEPF con­tri­bu­tion, by what amount can I in­crease my RA con­tri­bu­tion to ben­e­fit from the changes to the tax-de­ductibil­ity of re­tire­ment fund con­tri­bu­tions in­tro­duced on March 1?
