The joint pensions standards group has launched an initiative designed to boost standards in the operation of occupational pension schemes.The group is chaired by Jardine Lloyd Thompson’s John Reeve of the Raising Standards of Pensions Administration campaign. Its member communications team, set up to raise the standards has set out models of good and best practice after researching documents used by a range of schemes. Examples are available on the RSPA website. The initiative includes three guides for members – defined benefit, defined contribution and an annual scheme review booklet for DB schemes. They are based on current legislation but revised versions will be released to take A-day changes into account. The guides are in factsheet format. The team is also looking at best practice examples of annual member statements for DB and DC schemes and aims to post these on the website shortly.
