The quality and level of service we have received from CERS in relation to our pension arrangement has been of a very high standard. They are professional, accurate and timely and are responsive to our requests. Our CERS Consultant and Administrators are always available to answer any question that I or other employees may have.
Billy Coyne, Financial Director, Purcell Construction Limited
“As part of a restructuring programme by the Construction Federation Executive Pension Scheme now rebranded as CERS (Construction Executive Retirement Savings), the objective of which was to modernise the facilities available to our members, the management and administration of the Scheme was transferred to CPAS in 2010. The scheme is administered by CPAS in timely, efficient and professional way and the staff offer a friendly and accurate service in reply to all queries from the members of CERS. CPAS were instrumental in the rebrand of CERS in 2012. CERS now provides members with a wider choice of investment options, an informative website, and offers them online access to keep up to date with the value of their retirement savings. With the help of the CPAS Team, CERS won the Award for Best Communication Strategy at the Irish Pension Awards in November 2013. CPAS administers a Master Trust arrangement which enables a significant number of individual employers operate, within the parameters of the CERS scheme, in which pension, protection and savings products are tailored to meet their needs for their staff while at the same time having all of the Trustee Obligations overseen by the CERS Trustee Board and managed by CPAS personnel. This wide ranging function is carried out by CPAS in a thoroughly competent manner. In conjunction with CPAS, CERS are now able to offer access to comprehensive post retirement planning, protection, savings and investment solutions through Milestone Advisory. In this way CERS can offer continuity of service to members throughout both their working lives and their retirement years”

CERS has provided Collen Construction Ltd with a Defined Contribution pension scheme for many years. Over that time, we have found CERS easy to work with offering a professional yet personalised approach, thereby ensuring that we receive a high standard of service in relation to our pension scheme. CERS advisers have excellent knowledge of the various issues facing pension schemes today and into the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending CERS.
Kara Stuart, Company Secretary, Collen Group Limited
