Who we are

A Head for Pensions. A Heart for People.

Thousands of people depend on the Pension Protection Fund to pay them compensation for the money they lost when their pension scheme collapsed.

We protect millions of people throughout the country who belong to defined benefit, eg final salary, pension schemes.

Over 200,000 people are currently receiving compensation, and many more will do so in the future.
