Standard Life has been appointed as the designated stakeholder and group AVC provider for the Civil Service and National Health Service.
About 960,000 NHS staff will have access to Standard Life stakeholder or AVC products as well as 490,000 Civil Service employees. Standard says the NHS schemes will potentially be the biggest it will manage.
Standard is also the designated stakeholder and AVC provider for Consignia, formerly the Post Office, which has 220,000 employees.
General manager (sales) Feilim Mackle says: “We are well placed to meet the needs of NHS employees.”
