A fast, reliable and low-cost review and negotiation solution for private sector companies which contribute to public service pension schemes.

The financial and legal obligations associated with public service schemes are onerous: has your business addressed these risks?

When a business provides services to the public sector, it is often necessary to participate in a public service pension scheme. Such schemes include the Local Government Pension Scheme, NHS Pension Scheme, Principal Civil Service Pension Schemes and Teachers’ Pension Scheme as well as other similarly structured schemes that might apply to your business.

To be admitted to any such scheme, a business is required to enter into a formal agreement (usually referred to as an admission agreement) with the scheme managers. Reviewing and negotiating routine ‘business-as-usual’ pension admission agreements can be a burdensome exercise and can sometimes be neglected altogether. 

Not undertaking a proper review could cause your business to be committed to an agreement without knowing the cost.

Costs include:

  • Increased employer contribution rates; and
  • Exposure to payment of additional lump sums – payable under the scheme rules under certain circumstances.
