UK - Thousands more people are now receiving compensation from the Pension Protection Fund (PPF), latest figures reveal.
The PPF said this had now brought the number of schemes it had rescued since it was established in April 2005 to 57. The addition of these schemes brings the total number of people now receiving their pension from the fund to 15,935.
Many of the schemes which transferred in August have around 200 members but others, including the Asprey Group Staff Pension Scheme and Leyland Daf Vans Pension Scheme, have a combined 2,700 members.
The figures also showed the PPF had paid out almost £2.3m ($4m) in compensation this month alone and the average yearly compensation payment was £4,700 per person.
The PPF was designed to bail out insolvent pension schemes where the employer had gone bust and is funded by a levy on all private sector pension schemes.
And the amount of pension each person receives depends on their financial situations and age among other factors. It does not pay full compensation to all members of schemes that have gone bust.
People who have reached their own scheme's pension age will get 100% of their pension payments, but those yet to retire are guaranteed only to receive 90% of their accrued pensions.
