This notice is addressed to members of the HCL Scheme who are former employees of Howden Compressors Limited (company number SC053832) or former employees of James Howden & Company Limited (company number SC009324) (the “Companies”). It is also addressed to anyone who was previously a member of the HCL ‘Section’ of the Carrier (UK) Pension Scheme.
On behalf of HCL Pension Trustee Limited, as the Trustee of the HCL Scheme, notice is hereby given under section 27 of the Trustee Act 1925 that it is intended that the HCL Scheme will be wound up and terminated on 6 April 2017.
If you were an employee of either of the Companies and a member of the Scheme at the time, and think you are entitled to benefits under the Scheme, or if you are a widow/widower or surviving civil partner, child or dependant of such an employee, please contact the Trustee of the Scheme no later 6 April 2017 at: HCL Pension Trustee Limited, Mercer Limited, 5 George Square, Glasgow, G2 1AR, Tel 0141 248 5511.
You should include your name, National Insurance number, date of birth, current address and details of any benefits to which you think you are entitled, together with copies of any documents supporting your claim.
After 6 April 2017 the Trustee will distribute the assets of the Scheme to the persons entitled to them, and will have regard only to the claims of which they have notice. Therefore, the Trustee is looking to ensure that its records include all members with an entitlement under the Scheme. If the Trustee is not aware of any entitlement you may have under the Scheme by 6 April 2017 it will not be liable to pay benefits to you.
Notice is not required from persons who are currently in receipt of a pension from the Scheme, who have been contacted by the Trustee at their current address or who have already made a claim and received a response.
Please alert anyone to whom you believe this notice may apply.
Issued on behalf of HCL Pension Trustee Limited.
