Member Data Deadline

Friday, June 1, 2012

In June 2010 the Pensions Regulator issued guidance on good practice in relation to record-keeping and, in particular, measuring the presence of member data and its accuracy, which are important in the administration of a pension scheme.

The target date imposed by the Regulator for complying with the standards of data set out in the guidance is December 2012. Schemes, therefore, only have a little more than 6 months to ensure their member records are up to standard.

The training session was very good – pitched just right in terms of our knowledge levels.
