DC schemes asked to confirm compliance with charge controls
DC scheme returns will be issued to schemes in the coming months and the regulator is urging trustees, and those completing returns on behalf of trustees, to ensure they fully understand the new requirements where relevant.

As a result of new legislative requirements introduced on April 6, trustees and managers of occupational defined contribution (DC) pension schemes will be asked to confirm whether or not they comply with new charge controls. Other new questions added to the scheme return will include confirming the name of a scheme’s chair of trustees or managers. A guide to what’s new in this year’s scheme return and how to complete it in full is now available on our website - http://tinyurl.com/pjzavxn


Andrew Warwick-Thompson, executive director for DC and public service pension schemes, said:

“The regulations which became law in April place new requirements on trustees and are designed to drive up standards of governance across DC workplace schemes. A key part of our remit is to educate and enable trustees and managers to ensure they understand how to satisfy these new regulations and, in doing so, provide assurance to scheme members that their pensions savings are being looked after properly.”

 A new step-by-step guide to help small businesses get ready for their automatic enrolment duties has been launched. The online guide has been written specifically for employers with between one and 50 staff, many of whom will have limited #pensions experience. The guide explains how to complete key tasks such as knowing when to be ready, providing a point of contact for the regulator, checking who needs to be enrolled and creating a plan of action. http://tinyurl.com/qzgtqob

 Setting the DC standard – master trusts and large schemes lead the way on quality New research shows that 9 out of 10 master trusts and 86% of large defined contribution (DC) pension schemes have reviewed their governance processes against The Pension Regulator’s quality features – but many small and medium schemes need to do more.

Pension Scams are changing - find out how to protect your scheme members

The pension landscape is changing and from April 2015, scheme members can access their pension savings in new ways. Pension scammers will take advantage of these changes and try to lure members with promises of one-off investments, pension loans or upfront cash. Many scammers are directing members to transfer into single member occupational schemes in an attempt to escape scrutiny.  Read The Pension Regulator’s booklet to get an update on the scammers’ new tactics and help protect your members from losing a lifetimes saving in a moment.
