The Pension Protection Fund protects millions of people throughout the United Kingdom who belong to defined benefit pension schemes.

Tens of thousands of people now receive compensation from the PPF and hundreds of thousands more will do so in the future. The PPF is a public corporation, set up by the Pensions Act 2004, and is run by an independent Board.
