The Fund's 2018 Pensions Administration Strategy

Rule book

In 2017 Merseyside Pension Fund undertook a review of its Pensions Administration Strategy (PAS). This review was made necessary by the reform of the Local Government Pension Scheme in 2014, which made administration of the Scheme more complex.

Following consultation with employers in August and September 2017 and consideration by the Local Pension Board in October 2017, a final version of the PAS was approved by the Pensions Committee on Monday 13 November 2017 and came into effect on 1 April 2018.
