Helping employees understand their Defined Contribution pension

We help you and your employees get more value from your Defined Contribution scheme with simple and cost-efficient explanations

Uninformed scheme members are less likely to engage.

A good quality Defined Contribution scheme is a key benefit that employers offer to recruit and retain the skilled individuals they need. But the best pension scheme in the world will only give your organisation limited value if members don’t understand the benefits on offer.

Everyone benefits if you take the time to explain your scheme to employees, and we can help you do this in a cost-effective way.

How can First Actuarial help you put the right pension information in place?

We believe that the best way to explain pension issues to members is with face-to-face sessions. These can range from group presentations to one-to-one meetings, with timings and locations that suit you and your employees.

The sessions help members understand how their Defined Contribution pension works. We can run them for all your employees or specific groups, such as those with significant pension savings. We can also focus on areas such as pre-retirement choices. We agree the content with you in advance.

If you prefer, we can provide bespoke websites, modellers and apps that your members can use independently to make well-informed pension decisions.

First Actuarial case studies

Hachette UK

Hachette UK, one of the UK’s largest publishing groups, turned to First Actuarial to help improve staff engagement with pensions.

“One of the things I like about First Actuarial is that they’re very responsive. You never have to chase them for anything. They’re pragmatic and cost-effective.”



The RSPB was determined to minimise the impact of its new defined contribution scheme on employees, and appointed First Actuarial to support the transition and select a provider with strong ethical values.

“I would definitely recommend working with First Actuarial. Their consultants went over and above the call of duty to make sure the project progressed smoothly.”


Bolton Cares

Taking responsibility for care services previously provided by a local authority, Bolton Cares turned to First Actuarial for help in setting up a competitive and affordable DC pension scheme for its staff.

“They’ve been really helpful and professional throughout the project, and we’ll use them again if we need specialist advice.”
