Welcome to the DB Stakeholder Pension Plan

This page provides information about the Plan, a Group Stakeholder Pension Plan provided by Standard Life Assurance Limited.

Plan information

The DB Stakeholder pension was available to many employees of DB Group Services (UK) Ltd until 15 April 2007.

After that date, if you were eligible to join the DB Flexible Retirement Plan, personal contributions paid by DB Group Services (UK) Limited on your behalf under the DB Stakeholder Pension Plan were redirected to the new DB Flexible Retirement Plan.

The DB Stakeholder Pension Plan is now closed to new members.

Transferring to the DB Flexible Retirement Plan

You can transfer the amount you have built up in your DB Stakeholder Pension Plan to the DB Flexible Retirement Plan.

Transferring will not be right for everyone. You need to consider all the facts and decide if it's right for you. We recommend that you seek financial advice before deciding whether or not you wish to transfer. There is likely to be a charge for this.
