Mercer has linked up with The Open Market Annuity Service to offer enhanced annuity terms to members of its workplace savings platform.
Tomas will provide a medical underwriting service to the consultant, with members able to answer a series of questions online, by phone, or via a tailored questionnaire to determine whether or not they qualify for an enhanced annuity.
Mercer UK chief executive Alan Whalley says: “Up to now, corporate provision has lagged behind the individual market, where there is often an adviser providing support.
“We are now bridging that gap so company schemes can enable all their members to search the market and secure the best deal on offer for their circumstances.”
The consultant will also offer the service to members of its other group schemes.
