Working with Zurich

Working in partnership with you and your employees, Zurich are on hand to make sure that starting and maintaining your Company Pension is a seamless and efficient process.

Connection and collaboration

Operating a pension scheme is not as easy as it used to be. With ever-changing legislation and a need for improved governance, there can be more demand on you and your business. At Zurich, you can rest assured that we have structures in place to offer you support, advice and help throughout our relationship. Not only will we assist you throughout the onboarding process, but our Customer Relationship Team is always on hand to take care of any of your questions and needs as they arise. When you work with Zurich, we work together.

Strong customer relationship structure 

Your dedicated Customer Relationship Manager will be your direct point of contact with Zurich. He/she will ensure that your questions are answered and will work with you to devise an employee communication strategy that works for everyone. We will be in touch with you on a regular basis and you can reach out to your Customer Relationship Manager via phone or set up a face-to-face meeting at any time. When you need to talk, we're there. 

When it comes to getting your employees involved, Zurich's Customer Relationship Team can organise briefings at your workplace in a group session or on a one-to-one basis. We also issue market leading Annual Benefit Statements that communicates all the essentials of the employee's pension in a clear and concise manner.

Innovative tools to help you manage your scheme 

We can help your scheme members to actively engage with their pensions by using our new digital tools. Available 24/7, this means that members can always see how their pension is performing. By enabling your employees to become involved with their own investments, these tools save you time on administration.

We take the pain out of premium submission through our state-of-the-art Group Payroll Management System. This makes it easy for your company to securely send pension contribution data directly to Zurich, while minimising the effort required from you.

Zurich Connect is a convenient online portal, customised for your scheme that acts as a channel for communication with your employees and helps them to understand their pension through calculators, interactive tools and Frequently Asked Questions.

Help at all stages and sizes

We understand that switching to a new provider can be a daunting process. Thankfully, our transition team is here to ensure that this process runs smoothly from start to finish. We will meet with you to discuss your requirements, build a customised plan and lay out straightforward timelines. And because we know how important it is to keep your employees in the loop, clear communication forms a key part of our transition process.

Setting up your first Company Pension Scheme is easier than you think. At Zurich, we have over 40 years' experience in helping companies of all sizes to set up their first schemes. So whether your company is just starting out or is looking to switch providers, Zurich is the right choice for a seamless move into a strong relationship.
