In bulletin 36 you will find Geoff Stait’s thoughts on Workplace Pensions, the biggest change to pensions in the UK in a century.
He points out the change is well underway as it’s over 12 months since the largest employers started their schemes for Workplace Pensions, whilst those with over 500 employees have now reached their scheme “Staging Date”. Smaller companies are not far behind, because employers with under 500 employees must fall into line from January 2014 onwards and the remaining smaller employers will encounter their “Staging Dates” for Workplace Pensions between the middle of next year and June 2015.
Things are happening quickly, but as Geoff says, “this is pensions – and nothing is as straightforward as it should be”, so do contact us if you need some help to guide you through this countrywide employee pension revolution.
