Strathclyde Pension Fund Office (SPFO) is closed until further notice.
Staff are working from home to maintain our service, but our ability to respond to individual enquiries and to process new transactions is currently reduced.
In particular, our call centre is closed, so we are unable to take incoming calls. We are still dealing with enquiries by email. These should be sent to our mailbox at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond as quickly as we can.
Our immediate business priority is to ensure that our current pensioners are paid on time each month. We have robust business continuity and contingency arrangements to ensure that this happens. All April pension payments were made as normal and we expect this to continue to be the case.
As stock markets have fallen sharply in recent days, the current value of the Fund will also have dropped.
This is not an immediate concern. Our investment strategy is long-term and it anticipates some market shocks along the way. This has no impact on our ability to pay pensions right now.
