House of Commons Members' Fund (HCMF)

The Members' Fund was set up by the House of Commons Members' Fund Act 1939.

The Fund is not a pension fund and was initially set up to provide for discretionary grants to be made by the Trustees to ex-Members of Parliament who have attained 60 years of age and who have had 10 years service as Members, their widow/ers and orphan children under sixteen. Subsequent legislation allowed the Trustees to make discretionary payments to former Members and certain dependants having regard to their circumstances.

Changes to data protection laws

As a result of changes to Data Protection regulation, the Trustees have carried out a review of the Fund's information storage processes and policies.
All members have been sent a General Data Protection Notice.
