Workplace Pension Partner for Auto-enrolment

Christine Hallett, CEO, Options Corporate Pensions UK

Options Corporate Pensions are delighted to have been chosen to partner with many different types of organisations, not just individual employers, but also Federations and Associations for their memberships; Charities and Community Groups, and for those requiring a fully Sharia compliant scheme for their Muslim workers. We have assisted late stagers, and early starters; Accountants with multiple employers – the list is growing and seemingly endless!
We are committed to assisting any employer of any size and with any number of unique needs.
We continually strive to adapt and develop our product and proposition to achieve the best solutions for our growing numbers of workplace pension clients, to suit their individual requirements.

ALL employers have to set up a workplace pension for their staff. It is the law.
So, we just help employers get on with it and make it as simple as possible with as much support as they need.
For all employers that have not yet set up their workplace pension scheme to meet government legislation for Auto-enrolment, we are encouraging them to secure us as a provider for their scheme sooner rather than later.
Don't leave it until you are due to Stage, even if your date is in 2017or 2018.
Our message is:
Choose our scheme now in advance and then we will activate the process when it is required to start ready for Staging.

Why do we stand out from others?
For those, like us with a full 5 star Defaqto rating, we pride ourselves on our customer care and commitment to supporting every one, making sure we are resourced to be accessible from start to finish; person to person availability for every employer and their staff.
You won’t find any automated phone systems with us!
