Who can join an occupational pension scheme?
Traditionally, occupational pension schemes were for the benefit of employees, directors and spouses. One of the issues which arose from a recent Court Hearing, (known as the 5G Futures Scheme and the Ironstream Scheme) was that the legislation did not require that membership of the pension scheme is limited to only employees and other persons connected to the company. Individuals who have no connection to the firm can join an occupational pension scheme ( SSAS ), provided that at least one member is employed.
