The auto-enrolment solution for Northern Ireland
Workers Pension Trust is an occupational, trust based pension scheme open to all businesses in the United Kingdom.
The Scheme’s administrator has been operating a pension scheme from our Belfast office since 1982. We currently administer the pension requirements of over a thousand companies and tens of thousands of employees across the United Kingdom.
Workers Pension Trust is open to all businesses regardless of their size – from one employee to several thousand. We have experience of providing workplace pensions to all sectors including those with high staff turnover such as construction, manufacturing, transport and the service industry.
All staff, including hourly paid and those on the minimum wage, can join the Scheme. We can accommodate different groups of employees and differing contribution levels, from the same employer.
The Scheme operates an easy-to-use secure online system to manage pension processing. Our experienced staff can provide companies with telephone based support.
Employees can transfer in from existing pension schemes and transfer out if they join another employer.
Workers Pension Trust Limited, a corporate trustee, was established in June 2012 and is responsible for the proper running of all aspects of the Scheme on behalf of Members. The Scheme is governed by a board of trustee directors. The trustees will ensure that the Scheme is run in the best interests of its Members, and in accordance with the Scheme Rules and the law.
Workers Pension Trust is jointly administered by Construction First Ltd and Mercer. Construction First Ltd has been operating a pension scheme for more than 30 years and currently administers the pension requirements of hundreds of companies and thousands of employees. Mercer are one of the UK's leading Employee Benefits providers.
In February 2017 Workers Pension Trust qualified for the Master Trust Assurance Framework quality standard and is the first local scheme to receive this recognition. The assurance is based on the new framework developed by the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW), in partnership with the Pensions Regulator. Trustees are required to report against 27 ‘control objectives’ relating to governance and administration which are audited on an annual basis. Workers Pension Trust obtained independent Master Trust Assurance, from Assure UK, with no exceptions noted and is one the first Master Trusts in the UK to report under the new framework.
Workers Pension Trust is also accredited to the ISO 9001 standard for quality management systems.
Workers Pension Trust has controls in place to ensure the security of member data against cyber-attack. The Scheme’s third party administrator and web hosting provider have cyber resilience strategies in place which embrace various security management standards including ISO27001 (the international information security standard).
