Important information about leaving Pace DC:
Co-op made some changes to its pension arrangements from 10 June 2019. If you joined Pace before 10 June and stop paying contributions you won’t be able to re-join again in the future on the same terms. The level of life cover you receive may also reduce depending on how much you’re paying into Pace.
You can choose the amount you pay into Pace DC. You should consider whether you could reduce your contribution to Pace DC and pay in a lower amount instead of stopping your contributions altogether. If you want to, you can choose to contribute as little as 1% of your Pay.
