POST OFFICE: POST OFFICE PENSION PLAN (DC SCHEME) – FOLLOW UP TO ONLINE SEMINARS

No. 397/2020


Dear Colleagues


POST OFFICE: POST OFFICE PENSION PLAN (DC SCHEME) – FOLLOW UP TO ONLINE SEMINARS


Further to LTB 347/20 dated 30th June 2020. Branches are advised that the two online pensions seminars took place as planned on 8th and 15th July regarding the Post Office Pension Plan (Defined Contribution scheme) in conjunction with the provider, Scottish Widows. I am pleased with the high numbers of participants on these online sessions and no doubt we will be working with the Post Office to organise similar events for the future.

A further Joint Statement has been published today and is reproduced below:


Joint Statement from CWU, Post Office and Unite

Post Office Pension Plan (Defined Contribution) – Scottish Widows – Online Seminar


Dear Colleague,


Thank you to those who were able to join the Scottish Widows defined contribution pension online seminars on either 8th or 15th July. We do of course appreciate that it wouldn’t have been practical for many people, particularly those who are customer-facing to have watched the seminar live.


With this position in mind, we are pleased the sessions were well attended and that hundreds of you were able to join either via phone or Webex. We hope you found the presentation both informative and helpful.


For those who were unable to join, or were only able to dial in, a link to the recording from the second session on 15th is as follows:

The full duration is 53mins with the main presentation ending at 36 minutes, followed by the Q&A.


A “One Update” was published yesterday containing the slides from the online seminars and the Q&A from the combined sessions (grouped by themes for ease of reading).


This activity is part of our ongoing commitment to you to raise awareness and knowledge of an important benefit. If you have any ideas or suggestions for further engagement, let us know.


If you have any questions about this communication please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Post Office Reward Team at RewardTeam@postoffice.co.uk or your Union representative.


Yours sincerely,

Maxine Cross                  Phil Savage                             Andy Furey Head of Reward              Unite the Union                       Assistant Secretary Post Office                                                                   CWU


Branches and Representatives are asked to bring this matter to the attention of our Post Office members and encourage them to watch the recording of the seminar and review the Q&As if they were unable to join the previous events.


Yours sincerely

Andy Furey Assistant Secretary
