Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance

The Lewis Workplace Pension Trust recognises the devastating impact the spread of Covid-19 is having primarily on the health of the population but also on the economy.

With our own business continuity plan now rolled out, many of our staff are working from home whilst a minimal team manage the office. We are asking employers and members to contact us by email where possible and we will get back to you either by email or phone. Please keep in contact, we're here to help.

This is an uncertain time for both employers and employees. The government has said it will “do whatever it takes” to support businesses through the crisis and this has led to some speculation that there could be a short-term suspension of minimum employer contributions in order to relieve financial pressure. The Pensions Regulator however has said it expects all firms to conform to their pension obligations.

In light of ongoing developments with Coronavirus (COVID-19) we wanted to tell you about the steps we are taking to ensure business continuity during the coming weeks while prioritising the health of our colleagues and our clients.

What we are doing to protect our clients and our colleagues

The health and wellbeing of our colleagues and our clients is at the forefront of our plans. As well as closely following government guidelines, we are taking the following steps:

  • The majority of our employees are now working remotely.
  • We will not be hosting meetings at our offices until further notice.
  • We will continue to have client meetings but for the time being these will be conducted via telephone & video calls.    
  • Our teams are in constant communication with each other.

Warning - Protect your pension

The Pensions Regulator has a section on their website specifically designed to help you protect your pension.
