Protected rights.

Protected rights funds can be held in the Dentons SIPP and since 6 April 2012, the Dentons SSAS, alongside non-protected rights funds. This means that clients can have their entire pension benefits under one roof.

Opting out of the State Second Pension (S2P) or, its predecessor, the State Earnings Related Pension Scheme (SERPS), was scrapped and from April 2012, the differences between Protected Rights and funds built up by client's own, or their employer’s, contributions, ceased to exist.
