The key to most pension schemes is the trust deed and rules. Not only does it provide the legal framework for the scheme, it also sets out the benefits payable to members and their dependants.
Regular changes to pensions legislation and/or the benefits provided by a scheme means that the governing documentation can quickly become out of date.
The Neon Legal team has carried out updating exercises for some of the largest schemes in the UK to individual pension arrangements. Whether your scheme needs some minor amendments (such as documenting the appointment and removal of trustees) or a complete overhaul, our experience and competitive rates mean that we can provide you with the most cost effective way to keep your documents current and compliant with legislation and the Pension Regulatorâ€™s guidelines.
We are able to provide documentation dealing with all aspects of the running of your scheme â€“ this could be a change in the benefit structure, the participation of a new employer or updating the schemeâ€™s explanatory booklet.
If you would like to discuss whether a legal review of your existing documents without charge would be of use to you or you would like a quote to compare our document services against your existing advisers, please contact Tushar Bhate or Kathryn Cowen on 0191 232 9005. Alternatively, you can email Tushar or Kathryn and they will contact you.
