I have benefits in Pace DC and Pace DB

Pace DB closed in 2015. This means no-one has been able to build up any more pension in Pace DB since then. You can find out about your Pace DB pension here:

If you moved to Pace DC at the time that Pace DB closed, it is very likely you have pension savings in both sections. You can find out more about how this section of Pace works here:

Before becoming a member of Pace, you may have been a member of the Britannia Pension Scheme. In 2011, the Co-operative Group Limited consulted with employees about a proposal to close nine pension schemes including the Britannia Pension Scheme. Members of the Britannia Pension Scheme were invited to join Pace in October 2012.

KPMG looks after the Britannia Pension Scheme on behalf of its Trustees. If you have a question, please contact: secretarybps@kpmg.co.uk
