Welcome to Nortel Pensions UK

The pension resource for former employees of Nortel Networks UK Limited and other acquired companies

Notice

Member update – January 2020

With the exception of former members who chose to exchange their entire ongoing pension entitlement for a one-off lump sum payment or those where the benefits secured in 2018 represented their full Plan entitlement, all other members should now have received a letter with further information about your additional pension benefits in the Plan. If you have not received such a letter then please check that we have your current address details and/or call us on 01707 607601 as soon as possible.

For members who are not already in receipt of a pension, you may need to take some action not later than 12 February 2020 so please check your letter carefully to see if this applies to you.

It just remains for us to wish you and yours all the best for 2020 which we hope will prove to be the final year of a process that started some eleven years ago and will finally achieve our objective of maximising benefits for all our members.

Notice

The Plan has left PPF assessment…

On October 8, 2018 the Plan left PPF assessment and members’ Plan benefits have now been secured in a number of different ways.

The benefits for most members who were already in receipt of a pension (together with some new pensioners) were secured with our chosen insurer, Legal & General, who became legally responsible for paying these pensions from November 1, 2018 onwards. The final monthly payment from the Plan was made on October 1, 2018 and some existing pensioners also received a one-off back payment arising from restrictions during PPF assessment.

Legal & General also assumed responsibility for most deferred members for whom a future pension has been secured.

A number of members (including some dependants) who had small pension benefits elected to receive a one-off lump sum payment instead of an ongoing pension.

Finally, a number of members who were not in receipt of a pension elected to transfer their Share of the Funds to approved alternative pension providers.

Members were sent a ‘discharge’ letter setting out details of amounts and how his/her pension benefits were secured. Legal & General sent a ‘Welcome Letter’ to each member who had an ongoing or future pension secured with them.
