This section contains information on the Final Salary/Defined Benefit (DB) and Money Purchase/Defined Contribution (DC) sections of the InterContinental Hotels UK Pension Plan.
The DB section of the Plan closed to future accrual on 30 June 2013. All employees who are directly employed by IHG are eligible to join the DC section of the Plan (DC Choice). With effect from 1 September 2013, IHG are required to automatically enrol all employees who meet certain criteria into a pension scheme. The DC section of the Plan is used for this purpose – please visit the DC section of this website for further information.

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Payment of benefits will be delayed if there is no Beneficiary Form or if it is obviously out of date.
