To help people save more for their retirement, all employers must now put certain types of employees into a pension scheme and pay money into it – this is called automatic enrolment.

New full support automatic enrolment solution

The People’s Pension, provided by B&CE, is a simple solution to automatic enrolment and it now offers a full support solution aimed at small businesses.

This new solution offers our members everything you need to meet your automatic enrolment duties:

  • a fast-track sign-up process
  • a high level of support throughout the life of the scheme
  • simplified, easy to use online systems
  • flexible administration options, even if they have no payroll software
  • a UK based call centre with extended opening hours for one-to-one support.

It’s a simple, hassle-free and high support solution for busy people who’d rather spend time running their business than trying to run a pension scheme.

Reduced charge for PDA members

Businesses with a staging date from January 2016 onwards that sign-up to The People’s Pension will pay a one off set-up charge of £500 plus VAT. It will also apply to those that have a 2015 staging date and sign up from 1 January 2016 onwards.

There will be a reduced charge of £300 plus VAT for our members.

What this means for you:

  • high standards of service and support
  • ongoing support during the life of your scheme
  • no ongoing charges for employers
  • a low annual management charge of 0.5% for members of The People’s Pension – same as it’s always been.

You won’t be charged if you’ve already signed up to The People’s Pension and need to add a new subsidiary company to your scheme and/or you’re an existing customer of any of B&CE’s other products – EasyBuild, Employee Accident Cover and Employee Life Cover.
