About Macmillan's pension scheme

Macmillan currently operates a defined contribution pension scheme run by Legal & General.

If you joined Macmillan on or before 30 April 2005, you would have had the opportunity to join the Macmillan Cancer Support Pension Scheme, our final salary pension scheme. This scheme is now closed to new members but it still operates and pays members’ pensions. You can find out more about this closed scheme below.

Investment matters

To make sure there is enough money to pay all members' pensions, the trustees and their advisers invest the money that has previously been contributed by members and Macmillan. To find out more about our approach to investing, download the scheme’s Statement of Investment Principles.
