Worldwide pension helpline


With changes in pension legislation due to come into effect in October, a Cornish firm of independent financial advisers has launched a free helpline.

Worldwide Financial Planning, which has offices in Truro and Wadebridge, has created the service to support employers get to grips with the introduction of Government’s new Workplace Pension and Auto-enrolment scheme.

Businesses across the south west can gain access to one of Worldwide’s pension specialists by calling 0800 0112825.

Andrew Stallard, who is on Worldwide’s pension team, said: “The changes in pension legislation will impact on every business, employer and employee in the UK.

“The Workplace Pension reforms mean it is now the responsibility of employers to make sure employees are automatically enrolled into a pension scheme and informed of this.

“It also means that employers will be required to pay pension contributions for any employees who join, and stay in, the scheme.”
