Marks & Spencer Pension Plan

Updated 14 Jun 2017

71 employees reported this benefit


Employer Summary

We’re all aware of how important it is to save for our retirement. At M&S, we want to help you along the way. We offer a defined contribution pension plan to new employees. If you pay into the plan, we will too, and these contributions will be carefully invested so, when the time comes, you can enjoy your retirement in comfort.

Legislation requires us to automatically enrol some employees into our pension plan. For instance, if you’re aged over 22, under state pension age and have earnings over a set threshold. More information is available on
