There are advantages for both you and your employer if you arrange with them to make contributions directly into your pension fund on your behalf. Under the new pensions reforms your employer is obliged to make contributions to a pension pot for you in addition to the contributions you make yourself if you fulfil certain criteria. This may be your BCF pension pot, or another pension pot.
