Public-sector pensions: consultation on amendments to LGPS transitional statutory underpin

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (HCLG) are consulting on draft regulations that will amend the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations 2013 (SI 2013/2356) to remove the unlawful age discrimination identified by the Court of Appeal in Lord Chancellor and another v McCloud and others; Secretary of State for the Home Department and others v Sargeant and others [2018] EWCA Civ 2844.

The working party will be chaired by Shubha Banerjee, member of ELA’s L&P Committee.  The deadline for submissions is 8 October, and ELA’s response will need to be in final form for internal sign-off a week before.

Again, work on this will start immediately so members applying will need to have availability between now and early October.

Please reply by Monday 14 September, 12 noon using the email link below to volunteer for the public-sector pensions consultation.
