If you have a final salary pension and your employer goes bankrupt, leaving a shortfall in the pension fund, you might be entitled to compensation from the Pension Protection Fund (PPF). If you're not yet taking benefits from your pension then use this calculator to estimate how much compensation you might receive assuming your employer is going bankrupt now. Please note: your actual PPF calculations will very likely vary. This calculator is only intended to give a simple estimate based on the information you enter below.
