Occupational Pension Schemes (Levy Ceiling) Order (Northern Ireland) 2011 comes into force

Implementation date: 31 March 2011

The Order prescribes that the levy ceiling on the pension protection levy is £892,092,092. The Pension Protection Fund imposes a pension protection levy on relevant pension schemes to fund the compensation payable to members of a scheme if their employer becomes insolvent and the scheme is underfunded by a certain amount. The Order makes corresponding provision to an Order made in Great Britain. The Order can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
