In a previous LGPS Bulletin I highlighted the consultation issued on the 8th May entitled “Local Government Pension Scheme: Changes to the Local Valuation Cycle and the Management of Employer Risk.” The consultation closes on the 31 July 2019 and a copy of our detailed response to the specific questions can be found here or click on the image below.

Our response highlights concerns over the quality of information provided by schemes, deficiencies with the proposals and existing Regulation, the calculation of cessation debts, the drive for security, legacy liabilities and the status of public bodies in the schemes, and makes proposals for a more equitable future framework.

Over the coming Bulletins I will be examining many of these issues in more detail.

PLEASE NOTE: Our response was updated on 12th August 2019 to include additional information.
