Scot Mutual offers stakeholder pack

Scottish Mutual is issuing a marketing pack for IFAs to help their

corporate clients meet the October 8 stakeholder deadline.

The Universal Worksite Pack provides marketing support and guidance.

By the Government&#39s deadline, all firms, except those with fewer than

five employees or whose staff earn under the lower earnings limit, must

offer a stakeholder scheme or a company pension scheme which meets the cri-

stakeholder and non-stakeholder pension products.

A 10-minute video in the pack called, It&#39s Time to Act, features John

Thomson, star of Cold Feet and The Fast Show, explaining the concept of

stakeholder and the importance of saving towards a pension.

The pack also includes a CD-Rom with aids such as IFA and employer

Powerpoint presentations, interactive decision trees and links to Scottish

Mutual&#39s website.
