GMP Equalisation: Working Group publishes data guidance

Published by Lucy Cresswell on

Implementing a Guaranteed Minimum Pension (GMP) Equalisation project, will require more data than is needed for the day-to-day operation of a pension scheme.  

The Pension Administration Standards Association (PASA) GMP Equalisation Working Group, have published a guidance note to help trustees decide how to approach data collection.  The guidance also sets out “best practice” approaches to dealing with common issues not addressed by the Lloyds High Court ruling.

  • Next steps
