Bring-forward Contribution rule for under 65

My Wife & I each have just over $1.4M in our SMSF. We are both 64 years old, retired and in pension mode. I have read that we both could add non-deductible contributions of $200K each this FY by using the bring forward contribution rule. I wanted to know if this is true? Also, what happens to the amount that goes over $1.6M cap? Would we have to move this into Accumulation Phase or the total amount will be in Pension Phase?
