THE 16-page autumn issue of Mirror Pensioner will be zooming through members’ letterboxes later this week (*AMP members only) – see contents right.
But after we had gone to press, independent trustee chairman Joanna Matthews, who was expected to attend our 2016 annual meetings in London as well as Glasgow, notified AMP secretary Gerald Mowbray that a clash of engagements would prevent her from attending in London on October 25.
It had been expected that Joanna would give a presentation on the status of the possible merger of the Mirror “Old/Past Service” and “New” pension schemes, a report on which is featured on the front page of the current Mirror Pensioner.
It is hoped that the presentation at the London meeting will now be undertaken by Trinity Mirror’s deputy finance director Philip Brown, and company group pensions manager David Astley.
Joanna is expected to attend the Glasgow meeting on November 7.
*If you’re not an AMP member you will NOT receive a copy of Mirror Pensioner – it is distributed only to AMP members these days.
AMP members receive two newsletters every year – one in the spring and another in the autumn.
The spring newsletter has always been members only, but in the past, members of the relevant pension schemes who were not AMP members have received the bumper autumn newsletter courtesy of a printing and postage subsidy from the Company. We can no longer count on that financial support and so must limit all newsletter distribution to AMP members only.
If you are not a member of AMP but would like to join – and enjoy two newsletters a year plus other benefits – you can download a form on the Join Us page (see dropdown menu above).
If you join straight away, we’ll try and arrange for a copy of the autumn newsletter to be sent to you, hot off the press!
DON’T MISS OUT. JOIN NOW.

SEVERAL members have been in touch to tell us their Spring Mirror Pensioner has never arrived. We’ve posted replacement copies, of course.
