How to join
As long as your work is associated with the Church of England you are welcome to use one of our schemes. Speak to us if you are unsure whether you meet this criteria.
There is no set up fee and you can enrol any member of staff, as long as they are over 16.
If you would like to join please get in touch with us and ask for a “participation agreement”.
Section 75 for Church Workers Pension Fund
All of our Church Worker pension schemes offer some sort of guarantee or promise. If you stop using us as your pension scheme we need to check whether we have enough assets to cover this promise.
You might stop using us for a number of reasons. For example:
- You no longer employ anyone who needs to be in a pension scheme
- You begin to wind up
- You decide to use a different pension scheme
If this happens then Section 75 of the Pensions Act 1995 applies. This can act as a debt and you might have to pay an exit fee.
If you have any questions about Auto enrolment, please contact us.
