PAT welcomes offers of material from potential depositors which will further its aim of preserving materials documenting the history, management and development of occupational pensions in the United Kingdom.

In the first instance, those considering depositing material with the Pensions Archive should consult PAT's Collections Policy, which outlines:

  • What PAT aims to achieve through the Pensions Archive;
  • The types of archival and printed material PAT are interested in collecting from depositors; and
  • The terms of deposit agreements made between PAT and depositors.

If you are thinking of making a deposit with the Pensions Archive, please contact the Chairman or Secretary of The Pensions Archive Trust to discuss your collection, or email ask.lma@cityoflondon.gov.uk. Details of how to do this can be found on our contacts page.

Collections can either be donated to or deposited with PAT, who will then enter into an agreement with its primary partner London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) or, where appropriate, other repositories to arrange for the long-term storage of the collection.

For further information regarding making a deposit of material to be stored at LMA, please look at the Deposit with LMA page. Arrangements for materials which will be stored at other archive repositories will be made on a case-by-case basis in liaison with the repository in question.
