Our core standards
Peninsula Pensions adheres to the industry standards set out within The Occupational and Personal Pension Schemes (Disclosure of Information) Regulations. A summary of which can be found here.
We also have internal timescales that we aim to achieve once all necessary information is received to process a request.
However, we are reliant upon the timely and accurate receipt of information from employers, payroll agencies and external providers, particularly where monetary values are concerned, and there may be occasions where delays occur.
