Part of being a shareholder is sharing in the Company's profits when a dividend is declared. This section tells you about dividends and how and when you could receive them.
If Standard Life makes a profit, our shareholders may receive a share of this as a dividend payment. If Standard Life does not perform well, this may lead to its dividends being reduced or no dividend being paid at all.
We currently intend to pay our interim dividends in October/November and our final dividends in May each year.

You have three dividend options:
Dividends are paid to all shareholders who are on Standard Life plc's share register at the close of business on the record date. This can be up to three months before the dividend payment date. If you buy or sell shares shortly before the record date this may affect whether you receive the next dividend payment. For more information contact your local Shareholder Services team - you can find the number in contact details - or your broker.
So there's no delay in receiving your dividend payments, please tell your local Shareholder Services team if your bank or building society account or address details change in the future.
