Welfare Reform and Pensions Act 1999

1.Stakeholder Pension Schemes

The measures in the Act

The measures in this Act that relate to stakeholder pension schemes are contained in Part I, sections 1 to 8.

The provisions in the Act create a statutory framework for stakeholder pension schemes. There has been further consultation on the detailed aspects of the framework. It is likely that the framework will require adaptation as the schemes evolve. In order to provide this flexibility, many matters of detail will be set out later in secondary legislation.
