When encouraging change to the approach taken with charity pensions I’m constantly asked the question by large schemes and regulators – have you got any analysis of the issues. This has often been difficult to obtain and as a result the pension difficulties charities face are often all too easily ignored. Charities really need to have their voice heard and here is your chance. Charity Finance Group are carrying out a pension survey to use to better inform on the issues faced and to assist in negotiations with DWP and LGPS for a change in legislation and approach. This is a great opportunity for charities to influence future pension policy and thinking, and to really get their views across at a high level. I would strongly encourage charities to participate by following the link and providing your experience. But don’t delay as the survey closes on the 7th April.
