I'm not sure it would be that much more expensive - I assume the company doesn't have to keep paying, you just don't have to go to the bureaucracy of moving the funds to another account.
That's right. The company does not have to pay any further contritutions.

Contributions comprise a risk portion and a savings portion.

For the risk portion, an ex-employee who elects to remain in the company's pension plan must pay in the employee's and the employer's contribution.

If the ex-employee defaults, then the pension plan can warn and, in the absence of the ex-employee catching up those payments, the ex-employee can be excluded from the pension plan.

In other words, the way to keep the cover is to
a) make sure you don't miss the deadline to declare that you want to continue, and
b) reliably pay in the risk portion, both your own and that which was formally covered by the employer.

For the savings portion, contributions are voluntary.
