ROYAL MAIL PENSION PLAN (RMPP) NEWSLETTER
Branches are advised that we are in regular contact with the Trustee of the Royal Mail Pension Plan (RMPP) and also with senior management at the Pensions Service Centre (PSC) with regards to our members’ pensions.
Attached to this LTB for your information is the Spring RMPP newsletter which provides an update to members on recent developments including a section on measures put in place in the PSC due to the impact of the Coronavirus and the latest funding situation (as at 31st March 2019). The RMPP newsletter will start to arrive at members’ home addresses from today.
The newsletter also reminds members that, following a Government decision, Capita is now responsible for the administration of benefits in the Royal Mail Statutory Pension Scheme (RMSPS) while the Pensions Service Centre remains responsible for the RMPP. As such, those members who are in both schemes will receive communications from two sources. A prime example of this is the annual benefit illustrations due to be published later this year when these members will receive two letters as follows:
- Capita will write to members regarding RMSPS benefits.
- Royal Mail Pension Service Centre will write to members regarding their RMPP benefits.
Any enquiries in relation to the content of this LTB should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department.
