Nautilus Pensions Association
In these uncertain economic times, many
people are worried about their financial future
— so Nautilus offers UK seafarers an
opportunity to build their ‘pension power’.
We have more than 155 years of experience
in looking after the needs of maritime
professionals — and we are building on that
by having a body that serves as both a pressure
group and a support body for those concerned
about their pensions.
The Nautilus Pensions Association (NPA):
z provides a focal point for seafarer pension
scheme members — increasing their influence
within, and knowledge of, the Merchant Navy
Officers’ Pension Fund and other schemes
within the industry
z represents all members of the MNOPF and
MNOPP, which is particularly important at a
time of many changes in both
z serves as a channel for professional advice
on all kinds of pensions, as well as offering
specific information on legal and government
developments on pensions. It also supports the
Union in lobbying the government as required
z provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for advice on
other organisations providing support and
assistance to pensioners
z offers a range of specialised services
and benefits tailored to the needs of retired
z operates as a democratic organisation,
being a Nautilus Council body — with the
secretary and secretariat provided by Nautilus
The NPA is supervised by a committee of nine
individuals — four elected by the NPA membership
and four nominated by the general secretary,
plus the general secretary. It elects the four
committee members for a period of office of four
years, with half being elected every two years.
The NPA committee meets at least once a year
and is able to submit motions to the UK
National Committee, as well as reporting back
to a meeting of that Committee once a year.
The NPA was set up to build on the existing
highly popular Nautilus pension forums, which
continue to hold at least four sessions around
the UK each year, open to all NPA members.
The forums can submit motions to the NPA
committee and from there to the UK National
Committee — potentially shaping the stance
adopted at the MNOPF and MNOPP by the
Union’s officer directors on the Trustee Boards.
NPA membership is open to all UK Merchant
Navy seafarers — past and present — and costs
just £3.95 per month. Whether you are an
active, deferred or pensioner member of the
MNOPF, an active or deferred MNOPP member,
or even an active or non-active members of
another pension scheme (either personal
pension plans or employer-provided) the NPA is
there for you. Simply fill in the form opposite.
Existing affiliate (retired) members of Nautilus
International will automatically be enrolled in the
NPA free of charge. Other Nautilus members can
opt to join the NPA at no charge by contacting the
membership department, at membership@
nautilusint.org or calling +44 (0)20 8989 6677.

Payment by direct debit means your subscription to Nautilus International will be paid on time, every time.
You will be spared the nuisance of getting reminders and the inconvenience of having to alter your standing order whenever the
subscription changes. This is because direct debit allows for variations in the amount paid by your bank on your behalf.
You can also pay your subscription in instalments and decide which week in the month they are to be taken on, if you prefer.
Tick the appropriate box on the form.
If no preferences are shown we will assume monthly payments on the first week of each month.
