Pensions

Back to Employment & Pensions

Pension law is not always very transparent for employers and employees. It may be unclear if any pension commitments have been made, what they entail and whether they are being honoured. Other matters that also frequently arise are to do with the transfer value from one fund to another.

CMS can advise you on these and other schemes as well as disputes about employee entitlements to retirement and other pensions.
