Understanding Group Pensions

group pension scheme

Group Personal Pensions (GPP) are a series of individual pensions offered by one life insurance company. Though GPPs cost scheme members more to operate they have less regulations and lower administration costs than a final salary scheme.

Both employer and employee can contribute to a group pension – though they will be subject to a lifetime and annual allowance. The policyholder contributes to the plan and the money is invested to build up a fund.  

The amount of pension payable when the policyholder retires will depend on several factors including:

  • How much has been paid into the scheme
  • How well investment funds perform
  • What the annuity rate is at the date of retirement – this is used to convert the fund amount into a pension
