The UK National Association of Pension Funds has launched DC PensionsConnection, a new specialist member service aimed at those involved in defined contribution pensions.

Defined Contribution (DC) PensionsConnection has been designed to help those involved in DC pension provision meet the growing challenges of running workplace-based DC schemes.

DC PensionsConnection is free and exclusive to National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) members and offers a range of benefits including a website that will feature a ‘have your say’ discussion forum, online polls and presentations. It also offers a newsletter that will provide information on the latest news, legal and regulatory changes, research and case studies.

Joanne Segars, CEO of NAPF, said: DC is the fastest growing part of the pensions market and because the associated challenges are growing just as rapidly, we have put DC PensionsConnection in place to help meet those challenges.

DC PensionsConnection provides members with opportunities to network, share best practice and ideas with other schemes and keep up-to-date with the latest information on regulation and legislation.
