It’s important that the Trustees protect the money in the Scheme so they can continue to pay your benefits. In fact, they have a duty to do so.
To prevent and detect fraud, they sometimes need to share information the Scheme holds with other parties. A copy of the Scheme Privacy Notice is available for you to view.
From time-to-time, on behalf of the Trustees, the administration team use the verifying services of a company called LexisNexis Risk Solutions, who specialise in confirming member details for pension schemes and life assurance plans. They provide screening and tracing for those who have benefits with the Scheme but for whom we don’t hold currently contact details.
If you have benefits with the Gas Scheme (if you worked for the Gas Board or British Gas in the 1960s and 1970s – you can check here) and you receive a letter from LexisNexis working on behalf of the Scheme, asking you to verify your existence, please complete the form and return it to them in the enclosed prepaid envelope.
If you have any concerns, please speak to them direct by calling freephone 0800 170 7035.
