Stakeholder pensions

This practice note looks at stakeholder pensions.  The legal requirement on an employer to designate a stakeholder pension scheme was abolished with effect from 1 October 2012. But an existing stakeholder scheme can continue in operation for the time being and this note considers what these schemes are, how they were established and regulated, and the obligations they imposed on employers.
