After 22 September 2020, the Trustee will arrange for the distribution of the remaining Scheme assets, in accordance with the Scheme Rules, in order to provide benefits only for those members and beneficiaries whose claims and interests it is aware/had notice of. The Trustee will not be liable to any person whose claim it has not had notice of.
