I'm a pensioner

Every month Pace pays a pension to over 34,000 pensioners (which includes members’ partners and children who are now receiving financial support from Pace).

Pension payments

Once you start to receive a Co-op pension, it’s paid into your bank or building society account every four weeks. The actual payment date depends on which Co-op pension scheme you were in. You can download the latest pension pay date cards here:

All of your income in retirement above your personal tax allowance is taxable, including your pension from Pace and any State pensions. If you have a question about the amount of tax you’re paying, you need to contact the Tax Office that deals with Co-op pensions. Call them on 0300 200 3300 and quote the Pace reference number: 083/MZ87073.

Please note, the Co-op Pensions Department can’t contact them for you as it’s a personal tax matter.


Evergreen is the magazine for retired Co-op pension scheme members. It’s sent out twice a year, in April and November. It has lots of news in it about the Co-op, as well as stories and letters sent in by our pensioners. We love to publish your contributions, so please do contact the editor if you have any ideas for future articles.

Evergreen is also available in large print, tape or CD for pensioners who would find it difficult to read a printed copy.
