Details

This guidance applies where the legislation requires an actuary to certify the test scheme standard. It advises actuaries of what they need to consider when determining whether a defined benefits or hybrid pension scheme’s benefits are broadly equivalent to, or better than, those that would be provided under a test scheme.

We have published the template certificate from Annex D of the guidance separately in rich text format for you to download and use.
