“Introducing Collective Defined Contribution (CDC) pension schemes in the UK” – CDC roundtables in Brighton and Manchester

This invitation came to me from the PMI (thanks Tim Middleton) and I imagine that many people who live in Brighton of Manchester might like to go to one of these meetings, if so – as they are public and not in the conference boundary – you can – just follow the instructions at the bottom of this blog.

As my recent blog says, CDC is the way that many of us can get ourselves a wage in retirement from our DC pots.

Royal Mail and the Communication Workers Union (CWU) are delighted to invite you to a series of Party Conference breakfast roundtables on the introduction of CDC schemes in the UK.

As you are aware, Royal Mail and CWU successfully made the case to Government to bring forward the necessary legislation to enable CDCs at the earliest possible opportunity. We believe CDC is a progressive option which meets our objectives of providing sustainable, affordable and secure retirement arrangements.

Royal Mail would be delighted if you could join us at one or more of the conferences to discuss the merits of CDC and the Parliamentary processes required to make it a reality among industry colleagues and Parliamentarians.
