    Dear Members of Municipal Councillors Pension Fund

    We refer to our previous correspondence as well as the attached regarding the call for the election of the new board of trustees of MCPF.
    We reported to the various structures and at various platforms that the Curatorship of MCPF is coming to an end in June 2024.
    The Fund is therefore embarking on the process of conducting trustee elections to nominate new Members to serve on the Board of Trustees of the Fund. The process to be followed as per the attached Trustee nomination procedure is that all participating Municipalities where there’s contributing members, must nominate two (2) contributing members who will stand a chance to be nominated as a Trustee of the Fund.
    These two nominated Members will be invited to attend a Provincial meeting where elections for Provincial trustees will be held.

Welcome to the Municipal Councillors Pension Fund

The MCPF was established on the 1st May 1988 in terms of the Pension Benefits for Local Authorities Act 105, 1987 as the only Fund to service the retirement needs of Municipal Councillors. It was originally a defined benefit fund but has since the 1 December 2000 been restructured to a Defined Contribution Pension Fund.

The Fund is associated with almost all 278 Municipalities in the 9 Provinces of South Africa and enjoys an advantage of being managed by its members elected from among themselves within the 9 Provinces.
