What’s an occupational pension?

Nowadays this is called a workplace pension – though sometimes also known as employer, company, works or work-based pensions.

  • You might still see ‘occupational pensions’ mentioned as a broader term to describe older pensions that were offered in the workplace before the automatic enrolment regulations came in.
  • Previously, many employers offered stakeholder pensions, defined benefit pensions and other solutions. Since the auto-enrolment laws came in all employers are gradually having to offer a workplace pension.
