Your duties are wide-ranging - from the collection of contributions to the investment of assets and payment of benefits. Scheme members look to you to make sure that their pension benefits are secure.
You need to focus on a number of areas if your scheme provides defined contribution (also known as ‘money purchase’) benefits.
If you run a scheme that offers mixed benefits (sometimes known as a 'hybrid scheme') you need to manage the defined benefit (DB) elements as if they were a DB scheme and manage the defined contribution (DC) elements as if they were a DC scheme.
The introduction of automatic enrolment means that all UK employers will have to provide their workers with access to a pension scheme.
