Pensions – definitions – Stakeholder pension scheme

A stakeholder scheme is a low charge, contract-based, defined contribution pension. As well as a cap on charges, stakeholder schemes must accept a minimum contribution of just £20. Employees can stop, start, raise or lower their contributions in this type of scheme without penalty. 

The employee makes their own investment selection from the choice offered by the pension provider or adviser.
