Transfer. Protect. Grow.

Changing jobs? Retrenched? Or simply taking a break? Don’t spend your hard-earned retirement savings. Transfer your pension or provident fund savings to a Metropolitan Preservation Plan until you retire. Here's how it works:

A preservation fund is specifically designed to receive and grow your pension or provident fund savings when you leave your employer before retirement.

You don't pay tax on the transfer.

If your retirement savings is in a pension fund, you'll transfer it into Metropolitan’s Preservation Pension Plan.

If your retirement savings is in a GEPF pension fund, you'll transfer it into Metropolitan's Preservation Pension (GEPF) Plan.

If your retirement savings is in a provident fund, you’ll transfer it into Metropolitan’s Preservation Provident Plan.

You can take one withdrawal before you retire, subject to certain conditions.

In the midst of the pandemic, I wanted to get my affairs in order. I made my daughter enter my details online, hoping someone would call me back to update my polices, which are almost 28 years old. I didn't have much hope. Until Sam from Metropolitan called me and assisted me over one weekend. He was professional and courteous. My only regret is that we did not cross paths sooner.

The service I received from Luyanda in January 2021 is by far the greatest I have ever received from Metropolitan. She was kind, courteous and very helpful. Her voice really says it all.

I had to face my father's death and was still in mourning when money owed to me was paid back. I had no energy to fight but the Metropolitan consultant came to my rescue. My family and I really appreciate all of your efforts. Keep doing what you're doing.

I am the most excited client ever. Thanks for your help. My matter was resolved by Metropolitan and I will continue my relationship with them. A special thanks to Aletta Clarence and her team for such wonderful work. I recommend this company.
