The RIBA Pension

RIBA Pension has been awarded Master Trust Assurance Framework accreditation and shortlisted for Pension of the year 2016

A flexible, affordable, quality solution in partnership with the Landscape Institute

A kite marked pension for the people of architecture. The RIBA pension is a quality auto enrolment pension solution tailored to architects’ practices and delivered through trusted market leaders, and the LI have partnered with RIBA to expand this offer to the Landscape profession.

Auto enrolment is here

The law on workplace pensions changed in 2012, so that UK employers must automatically enrol eligible employees into a qualifying pension scheme, and contribute to their pension.

All UK businesses who employ one or more workers must comply. That means working out which staff are eligible, choosing a pension scheme, communicating the changes, enrolling staff, maintaining records and making contributions.

Each business will have a staging date, when the law becomes applicable. All firms will need to be compliant by April 2017.

We can help

RIBA has developed an auto enrolment pension scheme tailored for architects’ and Landscape architects practices. The RIBA Pension is:

Accessible – open to all staff and designed for practices of all sizes

Portable – employees can take their pension with them if they move to another practice

Flexible – offering a wide choice of funds and freedom to transfer accumulated savings in and out of the scheme without penalties

It is a quality auto enrolment solution, wholly compliant with government legislation and offering:

An annual management charge of 0.44%, well below the industry average, meaning more money goes into staff pension pots

Secure, affordable and compatible software, with chartered practices benefiting from discounted rates.

Capacity to take you on, whenever your staging date

It is governed by professional trustees and delivered through trusted market leaders:

Moore Stephens offers traditional, market leading investment advice and high quality assistance from a dedicated team of pension experts

Aegon brings over 150 years of experience in fund management to over two million customers in the UK

HS Admin provides first class pension administration services and technical expertise

If you are a sole practitioner, you are not required by law to enrol yourself into a scheme, though you will still want to consider how best to save for your retirement.
