Consultation on reforms to defined-benefit pension schemes
Close date: 14 May 2017
The Government consults on proposals to reform defined-benefit pension schemes. The consultation invites views on whether or not there is a case for reforming the schemes to improve the management and oversight of the risks pertaining to them. It sets out a range of options for improving the current pensions regime, in four broad areas:
- funding and investment;
- employer contributions and affordability;
- member protection; and
- consolidation of schemes.
