Pensions and Benefits

Pensions and Benefits

Employee benefits can be a profound statement of support for the people working in your business.

By law, every employee must now be automatically enrolled in a pension scheme, to which employer contributions will be compulsory. This could have a major impact on your finances - but we can help you adapt to meet the new requirements.

Our Arts Pension Portal is a budget-friendly auto-enrolment facility for arts organisations, flexible and modular, with staged, 'pay as you go' payments.

We can also guide your employees through the high seas of the investment world. You can maintain complete control, while your employees enjoy flexibility and choice as to where, how and for how longs the funds are invested.

La Playa can help you get expert cover in:

Health Insurance

Health insurance is a flexible benefit that enables your staff to seek treatment immediately and help them get back to work sooner. This is particularly important for key employees whose absence would adversely impact the business. We can also help with health screening and staff wellbeing services.

Typical cover includes:

• Appointments scheduled to suit your diary
• Access to experienced consultants and medical experts
• Some services come with 24 hr access to a GP or counselling
• Access to the latest drugs and treatments


Income Protection

What's your plan if a member of your staff is ill on a long-term basis? Does your business have the means to support an employee on long-term sick leave?

Income protection works by contributing a percentage of salary to help in the event of long-term incapacity. It reduces employees’ reliance on the state and/or discretionary employer sick pay schemes. Linked to your liability insurance, this can then reduce any settlement figure for loss of earnings.

Cover can include...

• Continued benefit if your employee returns to work in a reduced capacity, with a reduced salary
• Under the current rules, payments can be tax-free (although this may change in future)
• Rehabilitation support, to help employees get back to work healthily

Life Insurance

If one of your employees died, can you offer any financial protection for their family?
We'll talk through your options in providing life assurance for staff, giving them peace of mind that their dependants have some financial security on their death. This is usually by way of payment of a multiple of their salary.

Pensions

We can also guide your employees through the high seas of the investment world. You can maintain complete control, while your employees enjoy flexibility and choice as to where, how and for how longs the funds are invested.
