Deceased members

The Plan has a number of deceased members and dependants whose pensions ended during the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) assessment period (January 14, 2009 to October 8, 2018) and whose benefits were restricted to PPF compensation levels during this period.  Now that insolvency recoveries have improved the Plan’s funding beyond PPF levels an additional payment can be made, proportionate to the impact of such restrictions.  The Trustee has launched an exercise to try and locate close relatives of the deceased or individuals who had responsibility for dealing with their estate.  Letters are being sent to individuals who we believe may be able to assist in this matter so if you have received such a letter then please provide the requested information as soon as you can. Thank you for your cooperation.
