Scottish Life pushing executive pension plans

Scottish Life is making a final push in the run up to the end of its special offer on executive pension plans.


The special offer of a £500 bonus for any regular EPP premium of £5,000 or more applies to new and incremental policies made before July 6.


Many of the life office&#39s branches are using the special offer as an opportunity to organise local seminars for IFAs.


These are aimed at promoting the use of EPPs, in light of the fact that they are deemed as occupational schemes and therefore exempt from the restrictions imposed under regulatory Update 64.
