About the PLA

The Pension Lawyers Association of South Africa was founded in 1996 and is an association of more than 150 legal practitioners who specialise in giving advice on retirement fund and employee benefits law and practice.

The Association’s members are individuals, not organisations. On this website you will find details of who is eligible for membership, and the application forms if you wish to join. The Association is a legal entity and is registered as a vendor for VAT purposes. It is a non-profit making organisation governed by a Constitution.

Our Aims & Objectives:

  • To promote awareness of the importance of the role of law and Lawyers in the provision of retirement benefits
  • To afford opportunities for the discussion, sharing of information and consideration of matters of interest to Members of the Association
  • To make representations to organisations or governments or individuals on matters of interest to members of the Association
  • To develop and enhance the image and profile of Pension Lawyers within the retirement industry as well as with the broader public.
