Pensions - Articles - Pension Protection Fund releases its latest PPF 7800 Index


This update provides the latest estimated funding position, on a section 179 (s179) basis, for the defined benefit pension schemes potentially eligible for entry to the Pension Protection Fund (PPF).

 A scheme’s s179 liabilities represent, broadly speaking, the premium that would have to be paid to an insurance company to take on the payment of PPF levels of compensation. This compensation may be lower than full scheme benefits.

 Highlights
 The aggregate deficit of the 5,450 schemes in the PPF 7800 Index is estimated to have decreased over the month to £6.4 billion at the end of April 2019, from a deficit of £43.9 billion at the end of March 2019.
  
 The funding level increased from 97.4 per cent at the end of March 2019 to 99.6 per cent.
  
 Total assets were £1,649.2 billion and total liabilities were £1,655.6 billion.
  
 There were 3,089 schemes in deficit and 2,361 schemes in surplus.
  
 The deficit of the schemes in deficit at the end of April 2019 was £157.2 billion, down
 from £181.1 billion at the end of March 2019.
