Minutes:

20.1  The Board received the report of the Pensions Communication Officer – copy attached to the signed Minutes – which provided Members with the latest administration and regulatory updates affecting the Local Government Pension Scheme. The Pensions Communication Officer took Members through the main points of the report and answered a number of queries.

 

20.2  The Pensions Administration Manager updated the Board in relation to a decision not to award ill health benefit that had been sent to the Pensions Ombudsman.  She went on to explain that training was being provided to employers around how decisions should be reached and how to respond to any medical issues, whether undiagnosed or whether certain treatments had been looked into, also the likelihood of treatment being successful etc.  Employers need to question what the medical examiner was telling them.

 

20.3  In response to a query, the Pensions Communication Manager reported that the Pensions Dashboard was still being worked on. She explained that the dashboard was being rolled out to the private sector first and that it was unclear how it would work in the public sector.  The software providers were currently working on the software.

 

20.4  In response to a query, the Pensions Administration Manager explained that if the £1million lifetime allowance was exceeded, the value of the capital would be tax free up to 25%, but over that there would be an additional tax.

 

20.5  RESOLVED:

         

          That the contents of the report be noted.
