Detail of outcome
This document summarises the responses received and sets out how the government plans to take forward each of the matters covered in the consultation.
These draft regulations amend the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations 2013 (SI/2356), and the Local Government Pension Scheme (Transitional Provisions, Savings and Amendment) Regulations 2014 (SI/525) in order to provide clarifications that have been requested by practitioners and improve the operation of the regulations.
They introduce the ‘Fair Deal for staff pensions’ for staff in the local government pension scheme who are compulsorily transferred to another service provider. The Treasury ‘Fair Deal for staff pensions’ policy issued in October 2013 sets out new requirements for securing pension protection for staff transferring out of the public sector.
This consultation seeks comments on proposals to ensure that local government and participating employers in the local government pension scheme, provide the appropriate level of pension provision as set out in the new Fair Deal guidance.
