This website has useful information about the Old British Steel Pension Scheme (the Scheme). This includes updates on the Scheme’s Pension Protection Fund (PPF) assessment period, and the 'buy-out' process with Pension Insurance Corporation (PIC). Please check back here regularly for the latest news.
All the information here is provided by Open Trustees, the trustee of the Scheme. We were appointed to look after the Scheme when it entered its PPF assessment period on 29 March 2018. Since then, we've overseen the completion of the Scheme's PPF assessment period and completed a buy-out with PIC.
You can read the general information we have posted out to members since we were appointed, on the member communications page. There are also useful links to information about PIC and contact details for the administration team at Barnett Waddingham.
We’ve updated our contact details - see the Get in touch section or our Contact us page.
We’ve now completed all work ahead of the buy-out and from 1 August 2023, PIC have full responsibility for your benefits in the Scheme.
There are some changes to the contact details. From 1 August 2023, there’s a new freephone number for UK residents, a new email address and postal address.
