The Living Pension is a new Living Wage Foundation accreditation for employers who want to help workers boost their pension pots 

Pelion has today accredited as a Living Pension Employer. As an early adopter of Living Pension, their commitment will see everyone working at Pelion receive a contribution of 12%.

Today, Pelion is where established means robust, intentional, and well-connected. By design. 

The Living Pension is a voluntary savings target for employers who want to help workers, especially those on low pay, build up a pension pot that will provide enough income to meet basic everyday needs in retirement. It launched in March 2023. 

The Living Pension savings target is 12% of a full time Living Wage worker’s salary, made up of a minimum 7% employer contribution. This builds on auto-enrolment, and a minimum contribution level set by the government. Through auto-enrolment, employers must contribute at least 3%, and workers pay the remaining 5%. The Living Pension savings target can also be met as a cash amount of £2,800 a year. The employer contributes at least £1,630 to this cash amount.  
 
Sarah Moore, Head of Talent at Pelion, said “At Pelion, we believe in securing the future well-being of our employees. Being a Living Pension Employer reflects our commitment to providing a stable and prosperous retirement for our team. It’s an investment in our most important asset: our people” 
 
Jenny Cottee, an employee of Pelion who has moved onto Living Pension, said “I appreciate working at a company that is a Living Pension Employer because it reflects a commitment to my long-term financial security. It’s reassuring to know that the company values and invests in the future well-being of its employees.” 
 
Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation, said: 
“We are delighted that Pelion as signed up as a Living Pension employer, providing stability and security for their workers now and in the future.
