Submit a segregation request

Where a scheme has become a segregated scheme and intends to apply to PPF for exempt approved transfer, please do not submit a segregation request via Exchange until contact has been made with PPF (tel: 0345 600 2541 or email

A sectionalised/segregated scheme can be specifically set up to be this type of scheme or sometimes a scheme will become this type of scheme following an employer ceasing to participate depending on scheme rules.  Where a scheme is sectionalised or segregated each section will be treated as if it were a separate scheme for the purposes of the legislation.  Whether a scheme is a sectionalised/segregated scheme is a matter of law and the legal definition of a segregated scheme can be found in regulation 1 of the Pension Protection Fund (Multi-employer Schemes) (Modification) Regulations 2005 and the definition of a sectionalised scheme can be found in paragraph 1 of Schedule 2 of the Occupational Pension Schemes (Scheme Funding) Regulations 2005.  If you are uncertain whether your scheme is this type of scheme, please speak to the scheme's professional advisers.
