A workplace pension scheme with exclusive discounts for Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce members has been launched by Richard Jacobs Pension and Trustee Services Ltd.

Auto-enrolment means that all employers must provide a pension scheme for their staff, subject to certain criteria.

While large companies have already gone through the auto-enrolment process, many companies with 30 or less employees still need to set up their pension fund.

Newcastle-under-Lyme based Richard Jacobs Pension and Trustee Services Ltd is working in partnership with Staffordshire Chambers to ensure chamber members benefit from the right advice.

“The Chamber workplace pension service makes it as easy as possible for companies to get the right advice,” said Emily Jacobs.

“We will meet with companies to explain the regulations and advise them on their options.

“Businesses who choose to sign up for the Chamber scheme will then be taken through the process required to ensure that their staff are enrolled on a scheme which meets their requirements.

“By working in partnership with the Chamber, we hope to provide a service which makes providing a workplace pension as easy as possible for Staffordshire businesses at a discounted rate.”

To get involved with the scheme, businesses should contact Emily by email atemily@jacobs-pensions.co.uk.

Around six million people working for approximately 100,000 companies have now begun saving into a workplace pension.

The Pensions Regulator says automatic enrolment has proved successful so far but is reminding firms that they face fines if they fail to comply.
