Pension Administration Services

Pension Scheme Trustees opt to move pension administrators for a number of reasons, however, once that decision has been made, how do you ensure that the transfer of data, intellectual information and scheme know-how moves across in a sensible, timely and value for money manner? That’s without the consideration of scheme money, relationship and member management.

That's where we can help.

We have all the relevant skills to help achieve your move within the constraints of time, quality and value, and have PASA accreditation, the gold standard in high quality pension administration, in recognition of the “outstanding service” we provide.

Whether you want us to manage the project from start to finish or consult as the transition moves along, contact our Sales team.

Pension Communications

A pension scheme is one of the main benefits you offer your employees. However, traditionally pensions communications are dull. We adopt a very different approach and have won multiple awards doing so.  

Effective pension communication ensures employees can engage with their pensions schemes. Our communications cut through the complexity of the pension landscape, presenting information in a way that is striking, engaging, and fun!

Whether you would like your communications spruced up or would like us to design a bespoke member engagement campaign on your behalf, please contact us at communications@mycsp.co.uk

Pension Health Checks

If you are a small employer operating one or a number of employer pension schemes, it is imperative that you are doing things correctly and adhering to the legal requirements of managing a pension scheme. We can provide you with a bespoke service, tailored to your needs. Our compliance and risk professionals can audit your scheme, giving you peace of mind that your company pension is being managed in accordance with the appropriate scheme rules. We can ensure any issues are identified and addressed at the earliest stage, thereby preventing bigger and costlier issues further down the line.
