TPR and the Financial Services Authority (FSA) have published jointly an information leaflet entitled, “Guide for employers: talking to your employees about pensions” which is relevant for employers with defined benefit, defined contribution or contract-based schemes.

The leaflet sets out questions that employers may be asked by their employees about pensions and suggests answers and other sources of information available to employees. TPR hopes that the guide will encourage all employers to talk more openly and comfortably about pensions as part of their preparation for 2012 when they will have a statutory duty to enrol their employees into a qualifying pension scheme and will need to be more engaged with pension provision.
