How to Enrol a New Member

1) Understand how the scheme works

As an Employer you are free to choose which pension arrangement to offer your staff so you need to decide whether the Baptist Pension Scheme is right for you (see also Auto Enrolment ).

The Scheme has three different sections - Ministers, Staff and Basic

You can find out more at The Structure of the Scheme.  or in the Members' Explanatory Booklets below.

2) Complete and submit the application form

If an employee wishes to join the scheme, then he/she and the employer should jointly complete the application form below (which also includes a Direct Debit mandate for payment of contributions) and return it to the Scheme administrators, LCP.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are enrolling a new member under the Auto-enrolment legislation, please use the second application form below. The key difference between the two forms is that for auto-enrolment, the member does not complete any part of the form.

Your employee should also review the Default Investment Options form prior to joining and be strongly encouraged to also complete an Expression of Wish form.

Once the application for membership has been accepted, you will be sent a letter confirming membership and detailing the contributions to be paid.
