Company Pensions
It's only another year before your employer will have to decide whether he will provide you with a company pension regarded as satisfactory under the Social Security Act of 1973, or let you rely on the State Reserve scheme set up by the Government as a ' fall-back.& So it's vitally important for everybody in employment to know what kind of pension is planned and whether it will meet individual needs.
