PPI submitted a response to the Department of Work and Pension’s (DWP) 'Delivering Collective Defined Contribution Pension Schemes' consultation in December 2018.

It explains that, if designed effectively, Collective Defined Contribution (CDC) schemes could provide members with greater certainty and potentially higher retirement incomes compared to individual Defined Contribution (DC), while providing employers with greater certainty about costs and liabilities than Defined Benefit (DB).
