Changes to Pace


On 6th August 2018 two sections were created within Pace DB – the Co-operative Bank Section and the Co-op Section.  If you are a member of Pace DB, the Pace Trustee will have written to you in May and June of this year with details.  For more go to
www.co-operativebank.co.uk/pensions.  

These changes will have no impact on your Pace DC account.

The Pace DC scheme will continue to have two separate sections, as at present, one for Bank employees and one for employees of the Co-operative Group and other employers.

Your Pace DC account will continue to be administered on the Trustee’s behalf by Legal & General.
