Administration is central to the success of your Defined Benefit scheme

Good administration is crucial for the smooth running of your Defined Benefit scheme.

We tailor our administration service to our clients’ needs – from a simple help desk for your in-house team, to our full service which includes pensioner payroll, accounts production and management of the trustee bank account.

We focus on getting benefit calculations right.  We have rigorous processes to minimise errors, and we check our calculations and we check them again so you can have confidence in our figures.

How can First Actuarial help with Defined Benefit scheme administration?

Supporting your members

We give members clear and comprehensive information that they can understand and rely on. Whether members prefer printed documents, online tools or websites, we’ll give them the right information in a format that suits them.

Trustee accounting

We’ll prepare your trustee report and accounts, and work closely with your appointed auditor to get both signed off in a timely manner. We employ qualified accountants and use specialist software to deliver a smooth-running scheme accounting service.

Managing your trustee bank account

We set up robust systems and controls to manage the trustee bank account safely. We carry out cashflow projections and manage investments and disinvestments so we always have just enough money in the trustee bank account to pay member benefits. This keeps funds invested as long as possible, working hard for the scheme.

Running your pensioner payroll

We can work with your staff on your pensioner payroll, or we can run it for you, making sure pensioners are paid the right amount at the right time.

Why choose First Actuarial?

Our administration services are integrated with our other pension services, making us quick and efficient at everything we do.

We employ skilled staff and our technology is modern and robust, so we’re strangers to the legacy system problems that slow other providers down.

At First Actuarial, the people who answer the phone are the same ones who do the administration work. They’re always at hand to answer your members’ questions. That’s how we build trust with scheme members – this can prove invaluable when they’re faced with important financial decisions.

Both trustees and members notice that we genuinely care about the members and always put them first.

I had feedback from one past member who had taken early retirement. He called me to say what a wonderful decision we made in appointing First Actuarial. He’d spoken with a member of their administration team, and he’d been really impressed.
