WELCOME TO THE ABF PENSIONS DC SECTION

The ABF Pension Scheme offers a comprehensive package of retirement and death benefits for its members and their families.

This section of our website focuses on the Defined Contribution (DC) section of our Scheme. The DC Section operates like a long-term savings plan and is designed to give you choice and flexibility. Both you and the Company make contributions to your own Pension Account which is invested in the way you choose and which will be used to buy the type of pension you choose when you retire.

We aim to answer all of the questions you may have about the way our Scheme operates and what the benefits are to you, both immediate and long-term. Please take your time to read through the site. If you have any queries, please contact the Pensions Department.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - CORONAVIRUS

In line with the Government advice issued on 16th March, the administrators of the ABF Pension Scheme have closed their London office and all staff are currently working remotely.

The Scheme has a comprehensive business continuity plan which has been recently tested and arrangements are already in place for all member services to continue, including the payment of pensions. The team will endeavour to respond as quickly as possible but there is likely to be a longer turnaround time compared with the usual service.

It is likely in this disruptive and uncertain time that there may be interruption and delays to postal services in particular though, so we therefore ask that if you require a quicker response that you contact us by email if possible, or by phone.

If you need to send us completed forms or documents we have a secure file transfer web site which can be used on request instead of posting them to us, please contact us by email or phone for further details, please scroll down to see our contact details.
