Choosing a workplace pension service

March 1, 2017

This will help you to decide which workplace pension service you need.

Use our Premium Service if you want to take the hassle out of setting up and running your workplace pension scheme.

Our Basic Service is suitable if you want to set up a pension scheme yourself and manage the aspects of the pension that fall outside of payroll.

If you need to choose a pension, we work with a number of pension providers offering pensions that we think are suitable for nannies. If you want a wider choice you can use the pension selection service provided by Pension Playpen.
