ABOUT US

We’re the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, the national association with a ninety-year history of helping pension professionals run better pension schemes. Our members include over 1,300 pension schemes with 20 million members and £1 trillion in assets, and over 400 supporting businesses. They make us the voice for pensions and lifetime savings in Westminster, Whitehall and Brussels.

Our purpose is simple: to help everyone to achieve a better income in retirement. We work to get more money into retirement savings, to get more value out of those savings and to build the confidence and understanding of savers.

WE PLACE MEMBERS AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING WE DO

We exist to serve our members’ needs. We work hard to ensure we stay in touch with our members and their concerns, including through the provision of valued services and policy solutions that help raise standards and improve understanding.

Our members
Our member profile is a key strength. We represent all types of scheme including defined benefit, defined contribution, group personal pensions and statutory schemes such as those in Local Government. Our membership also includes a wide range of over 400 providers of essential advice and services to the pensions sector. This includes accounting firms, solicitors, fund managers, consultants and actuaries.

Additional services
In addition to our policy work we are also the leading provider of conferences, seminars, training, publications, education and information on pensions and retirement issues.

Our structure
The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association is governed by a Board. Reporting to the Board is a Defined Benefit and a Defined Contribution Council 

The Councils are the association's main policy-making bodies and work closely with our executive. Each Council has a number of working groups or sub-committees, which contribute to the detail of our policy and lobbying work.

Details of current Board and Council members can be found in the left menu.
