Pace DC administration charges

If you’re in Pace DC, you currently pay an Annual Management Charge from your account to Legal & General to pay for the administration of Pace DC. The Co-op previously paid a £5 per member subsidy each year to Legal & General to reduce this charge.

The Co-op agreed with Legal & General that this subsidy would cease from April 2019 and as a result the administration charge increased slightly from 0.13% to 0.16% of the value of your fund each year, an increase of 30p for every £1,000 you save. The charges paid to Legal & General are still very competitive. Full details of the charges paid from your account are in the Pace DC pension guide.
