What is the goal
of the fund?

The Legal Provident Fund was registered in 1967 as an independent body for the legal profession and since then via its body of trustees has been providing member employees with retirement, death and disability benefits. The fund is a defined contribution provident fund. It is registered as an umbrella fund which allows it to have multiple participating employers.

Who can join
the fund?

The fund is open to employees, directors and partners. It is also open to employees of advocates and advocates’ groups.  Sole practitioners and advocates are not “employees” in terms of law and cannot join any pension or provident fund. They can take out a policy for individuals such as a retirement annuity.  Most law firms do not have enough employees to be able to set up their own retirement funds. Through the fund, the employees of the individual firms are pooled to negotiate good benefits and affordable premiums.

Who administers
the fund?

The fund has been administered by Alexander Forbes since 2004. Alexander Forbes has an 81 year track record in providing employee benefit solutions. For more information about Alexander Forbes please visit www.alexanderforbes.co.za.
