      Reason for opting-out

      * Denotes required fields

      I understand that by doing so:

      • My Plan contributions will cease
      • To the extent I was eligible for Company contributions, I will no longer benefit from these contributions to the Plan
      • My death-in-service benefits will no longer include any pension for my spouse/civil partner/nominated dependant or dependent children
      • My death-in-service benefits will no longer include full life cover. It will be reduced to twice my pensionable salary
      • I will no longer be eligible for an enhanced ill-health pension from the Plan
      • I may be automatically enrolled back into the Plan at a later date (usually every three years) if I meet certain criteria and I will be given further information and the opportunity to opt-out again at that time
      • I may have a lower income when I retire
      • If I change job, my new employer will normally put me back into pension saving straight away
      • This notice only opts me out of pension saving with the employer named above. A separate notice must be filled out and given to any other employer I work for if I wish to opt out of that pension saving as well
      • I am aware that my employer cannot ask me or force me to opt out and if I am asked or forced to opt out I can tell the Pensions Regulator see
