Defined Contribution

About

Defined contribution pension provision under trust and contract based arrangements is of growing importance. Defined contribution schemes are usually used for auto-enrolment and pension savings from them can be accessed in a number of flexible ways.

Our work in this area includes:

  • advising on auto-enrolment and re-enrolment
  • advising employers and trustees on pension flexibilities (and on transfer process sometimes needed to take advantage of the flexibilities)
  • advising on the master trust assurance framework and the use of master trusts
  • establishing defined contribution trust based schemes or sections of schemes
  • advising on the charges and governance regime
  • drafting member communications
  • advising on benefit design issues
