Ok, thanks. Yes, it's defined contribution, not defined benefit. The money goes into various equity funds.
What I don't quite grasp is, if the company disappeared during the next few decades, who would administer the pension? Who would I go to for it in due course? At the moment correspondence comes from an in-house pension guy.
I guess quite a few other people must end up collecting various small pensions over time given the hopscotch nature of many consulting careers.
