The auto-enrolment solution for Northern Ireland

Master Trust Authorisation

New regulations came into force on 1 October 2018 to raise standards in Master Trust pension schemes.

In August 2019 Workers Pension Trust became the first Northern Ireland based pension provider to be awarded Master Trust Authorisation from The Pensions Regulator.  Authorisation creates safeguards by ensuring master trusts are run by fit and proper people, have the right systems and processes in place and are financially sustainable. We believe that Master Trust Authorisation improves outcomes for our members and participating employers and serves to reassure them that Workers Pension Trust is the right provider.
