Trustee webinars

Watch our trustee webinars – hosted live in February 2019. They cover important topics around pensions and gave our members, employers and advisers the opportunity to ask questions. We’ve answered many of the questions we received in our Q&A documents which you can download below.

Presenting on the day were Trustee Directors, Steve Delo and Sue Lewis – along with Directors Kevin Martin and Gregg McClymont – who are responsible for protecting your benefits and making sure that the pension scheme is run properly.

*We send information about your options at retirement 6 months before your selected retirement age; this is either a date around your State pension age, or a date you’ve selected. If you’ve chosen the earliest possible retirement age of 55 we’ll still send the information to you 6 months before you reach that age.
*If your employer set your pension up under the relief at source tax relief arrangement we’ll claim any basic rate tax relief you are due (if you meet the conditions to be entitled to it) from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). You’ll need to claim any additional tax relief you are due via a tax return with HMRC. If your employer is set up under the net pay arrangement you’ll automatically receive tax relief at the highest rate you’re entitled to.
*After 31st March 2019 all master trusts wishing to continue to operate must have submitted a request for authorisation to The Pensions Regulator (or a request for an extension).
*Subject to the annual allowance, members can contribute up to 100% of UK earnings and receive tax relief every year. If a member has no earnings, or earns up to £3,600 a year, they can contribute up to £2,880 every year and tax relief will increase this to £3,600 per tax year. The annual allowance includes all your contributions, tax relief and employer contributions across all your pension arrangements. The standard annual allowance is currently £40,000 per tax year. Contributions over this limit will result in a tax charge, known as the annual allowance charge.
