These pages contain information on the IHG UK Defined Contribution Pension Plan (also known as DC Choice) which is a Money Purchase/Defined Contribution (DC) pension arrangement for employees of IHG. Prior to August 2014, this DC plan was a section of the InterContinental Hotels UK Pension Plan.
With effect from 1 September 2013, IHG are required to automatically enrol all employees who meet certain criteria into a pension scheme. The IHG UK Defined Contribution Pension Plan is used for this purpose – please visit the DC page of this website for further information.
IHG previously also operated a Final Salary/Defined Benefit (DB) section of the InterContinental Hotels UK Pension Plan. The DB section was closed to future accrual on 30 June 2013 and the responsibility for all DB section benefits accrued in that plan was subsequently transferred to an insurance company, Rothesay Life. If you were a member of the DB section, please visit the DB page of this website for Rothesay Life's contact details.

Are you aware that, even if you are not a member of the Plan, in the event of your death there may still be benefits payable? Read below to find out more:
UK employees who are not members of the pension scheme are provided with life assurance cover equivalent to one year's earnings until the earlier of leaving employment or reaching retirement age. Employees who do not pay pension contributions are not considered to be members for the purposes of any of the other Plan benefits.
So that the Trustees are fully aware of your wishes as to the recipients of any cash sum benefit, it is very important that you complete and return the Beneficiary Form available here.
Payment of benefits will be delayed if there is no Beneficiary Form or if it is obviously out of date.
