final salary pensions

Many employers are able to offer occupational pensions to members of staff.

  • Final Salary Pensions – this type of pension offers a defined benefit scheme whereby the benefits are related to the employee’s final earnings at retirement together with their length of service within the company
  • Money Purchase Pensions – this type of pension offers a defined contribution scheme whereby the pension income is linked to the fund’s value – which depends upon the contributions made, the age of the individual at retirement and the investment return.
  • Group Personal Pensionsan employer can arrange with a pension provider to set up a personal pension arrangement through the workplace. Unlike occupational pensions this type of pension is not run by the employer, however they will normally contribute to the pension.
