Welcome to Pensionwide

Welcome to Pensionwide, the magazine for Nationwide Pension Fund members.

2022 was an eventful year for many, including the Pension Fund. The Trustee has been active to protect the Fund during volatility and uncertainty in financial markets. Recently, the Trustee has completed the 31 March 2022 triennial valuation and a summary of the funding position is available to view in the ‘Your pension updates’ section. The Trustee also completed a transaction to transfer longevity risk.

There have also been changes to the Trustee Board, where we welcomed the election of Pete Corrie and the re-election of Sarah Garrett.

The pensioner groups have been busy. Take a look at the 'Pensioner group news and contacts section’ for more information on what they’ve been up to and their plans for the rest of the year.

Check out the update on how we’ve improved your Fund website and what the recent Spring Budget announcement means for your pension in the respective sections.

If you need information about your pension, have any comments on this issue of Pensionwide, or suggestions for future issues, email or write to us at Nationwide Pension Fund, Buck (Bristol), PO Box 319, Mitcheldean, GL14 9BF.

We hope you enjoy the read.
