Pensions & International Seafarers Retirement Savings Plan
Whilst Voyonic are not regulated to provide pensions advice or operate our own pension schemes, because of the nature of our business we have over the years developed relationships with reputable pensions providers who understand the nature of the marine industry and the whole concept of international employment.
In addition to deducting and monitoring pension contributes to various jurisdictions, Voyonic are pleased to be involved in leading the way with the International Seafarers Retirement Savings Plan. A scheme developed by industry experts and with the backing of Zurich that enables almost every seafarer to plan for their retirement (see links).
There has always been a requirement to insure a ship and it’s crew, however the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 added clarification to this and changes to French Social Security legislation recently re-enforced the requirement for crew insurances to be in place.
Through the many reputable contacts that we have built up over the years Voyonic Crewing Limited are able to assist clients to ensure that any potential obligations for employees are covered in accordance with appropriate legislation. See Our Partners & Useful Links Section for more information
