The Cheviot Pension

Introducing Cheviot

  • The Cheviot trust is a not for profit organisation established in 1930.
  • Cheviot has won awards including Best DC Plan Design and Best Report and Accounts and has been shortlisted for awards for governance and communications.
  • It is managed by a Board of Trustees. The Trustees come from different firms and backgrounds and are there to look after your interests.
  • They represent both employers and members to make sure that your Cheviot pension is well run, your money is thoughtfully invested and investment performance is regularly reviewed and monitored.
  • Day to day administration is provided by a team working from Cheviot’s Southend offices.

The Cheviot Pension

  • The Cheviot pension is a money purchase or defined contribution arrangement that is registered with HMRC and benefits from tax advantages under current legislation.
  • Your employer may be using it as their workplace pension for auto-enrolment.
  • Contributions from you and your employer are invested and provide pensions savings for when you retire.
  • Some members have historic With Profits benefits which are managed separately in the With Profits Section of the Cheviot pension.


If you do not pay tax (earning less than £11,500 in 2017/18 tax year), the Cheviot pension may not be an appropriate scheme for you, as you will not benefit from tax relief on your contributions
