Scot Life extends special offer

Scottish Life is extending its “no policy fee” special offer on its Talisman pensions range until the end of July.

The “not 1, not 2 but 3” offer applies to single premiums or transfers of £10,000 or more into a personal pension plan, regular contributions of £100 a month or more into a PPP or regular premiums of £250 a month or more into an executive pension plan.

Product marketing manager (individual pensions) John Joe McGinley says: “Many individuals will now be looking to assess their current and future financial plans after it was announced in the budget that National Insurance contributions are to increase by 1 per cent. As an organisation which is 100 per cent committed to IFAs, our aim is to ensure advisers maximise these opportunities.”
