Your Balanced Pension Plan
Your employer has chosen Delta Lloyd’s Balanced Pension Plan as your pension scheme. What is the Balanced Pension Plan? What choices and options do you have? And what has been arranged for you?
What is the Balanced Pension Plan?
The Balanced Pension Plan is a pension scheme into which your employer makes a contribution every year. You then use the contribution to buy a guaranteed pension. With a guaranteed pension the amount of pension you receive when you retire is fixed in advance. The actual pension amount depends on the total contributions paid in. Note that the pension you purchase is nominal. If your pension is not increased from time to time, it will gradually lose some of its purchasing power. Refer to your pension introductory letter to see if we adjust your pension in line with inflation.More about your Balanced Pension Plan

Your employer will then pass on this information to Delta Lloyd.Situations in which you should take action yourself
