The reduction in fertility rates, combined with the increase in life expectancy means that the cost of providing State Pensions is increasing. It is widely acknowledged that individuals have to start taking responsibility for their own future wellbeing and save sensibly towards a financially secure and independent retirement.
The MAPFRE MSV Life WorkSave Pension product is a contract based, voluntary work place pension scheme. Its main aim is to offer you a way of saving for the retirement of your employees in a tax efficient manner.
