A Stakeholder Pension is a private pension. Anyone in work (or those unemployed but still able to afford payments) can pay contributions regularly which are invested to build up a pension fund.
You can contribute regularly or occasionally, but it is always best to make regular weekly or monthly contributions and you can always change the amount.
Everyone who contributes to a Stakeholder Pension fund will receive tax relief on their contributions. If you are interested in setting up a Stakeholder Pension, contact your consultant and he/she will assist you in setting up a scheme.
