Pension information

When the person whose dependant’s pension you are now receiving was working for BOC, they could have been a member of ‘The Retirement Savings Plan (the RS Plan)’, ‘The BOC Pension Scheme (BOCPS)’, or even both.

If you are unsure which is relevant to you, here is a bit more information:

The Retirement Savings Plan (The RS Plan)

The RS Plan is the open defined contribution plan for all employees since 1 July 2003.

If the former employee joined the Company on or after 1 July 2003, it is likely that they were a member of the RS Plan.

For more information about the RS Plan, read Your Guide to the RS Plan. For recent financials, you can read the RS Plan Summary Report and Accounts newsletter, or the full Report and Accounts.

The BOC Pension Scheme (BOCPS)

BOCPS is the defined benefit scheme that closed to new members on 30 June 2003.

If the former employee joined the Company on or before 30 June 2003, it is likely that they were a member of BOCPS.

For more information about the BOCPS, read Your Guide to the BOCPS. For recent financials, you can read the BOCPS Summary Report and Accounts newsletter, or the full Report and Accounts.
