Voluntary redundancy - Pension

I'm soon to take redundancy and have a question on the company pension contribution.
They have to give me 3 months notice, so they are intending that I work 1 month and then finish up and they will pay PILON for the remaining 2 months. But they are saying will don't pay the DC pension contributions for the 2 months of PILON as I would no longer be an employee.
Is this correct ?

    In the circumstances you cease being an employee as soon as you stop working which would be on the final day of the agreed one month's notice. With PILON you effectively get paid for not working..
