Who qualifies for ProfitShare

To be eligible for ProfitShare, employees must have a pension plan that started with us on or after 1 July 2001.

If that's the case, we'll automatically set up a ProfitShare account under their plan. You don't need to do anything.

If your scheme is an occupational scheme, employees' eligibility for ProfitShare is based on the date your scheme began – not the date the employee joined.

ProfitShare awards will be applied as at 1 April each year. To qualify, employees' plans must be in force on 31 December the previous year and on the date the award is given.

There's no guarantee that we'll be able to award ProfitShare every year.
