The People’s Pension enrols its 3 millionth member
The People’s Pension, the UK’s largest private sector master trust pension scheme and part of Crawley-based firm, B&CE, today announces that it has enrolled its 3 millionth member.
The People’s Pension started enrolling members in October 2012 and since that time, has helped over 65,000 employers with their pension obligations. It now manages almost £2.3 billion.
The People’s Pension reached one million members in September 2014 and two million members just over a year and a half later in April 2016.
Today’s announcement coincides with B&CE celebrating its 75th year and its Charitable Trust also surpassing £3 million in grants made to organisations helping construction workers in need.
News of the 3 millionth member milestone for The People’s Pension comes as B&CE breaks ground on a major renovation of Dormans, a community centre in Gossops Green, as part of its activities to mark its 75th anniversary.
With the help of local suppliers and some clients, B&CE will be fully refurbishing Dormans’ facilities over the summer to create a bright and welcoming space in which to run its activities and services for young people in the Crawley area.
Patrick Heath-Lay, Chief Executive Officer of B&CE said: “I am delighted that in our 75th year, B&CE can celebrate helping 3 million members save for their retirement through The People’s Pension and supporting countless construction workers in need through over £3 million of grants made by our Charitable Trust. Donning hard hats and picking up paintbrushes to support Dormans’ hugely valuable work in our local community seems a fitting way to celebrate these achievements.”
