Description

The Pensions Board is hosting a dedicated pension information seminar for actuaries and lawyers to explain recent changes to the funding standard rules for defined benefit pension schemes.

The new rules set out how defined benefit schemes must meet their funding obligations and what steps they must take if they do not.  The Pensions Board also announced the deadlines by which trustees must submit funding proposals to the Board to deal with scheme deficits.

The seminar will explain the impact of these legislative changes and will discuss what decisions have to be taken by trustees of underfunded schemes. 

Areas to be covered include:
•    the Board’s approach to dealing with defined benefit scheme funding issues
•    deadlines for the submission of funding proposals
•    the introduction of risk reserves
•    sovereign annuities and sovereign bonds
