Farm pensions

As large businesses start to implement their auto-enrolment pensions this month, NFU Mutual, a provider of pensions and investments, is urging smaller business owners and farmers to start making plans for their own workplace pension schemes.

Steve Meredith, pensions spokesperson for leading rural insurer NFU Mutual, said: “A lot of farmers and rural business owners might think they don’t need to be concerned about auto enrolment and workplace pensions. But they only have to have one eligible employee to be affected.”
