The Pensions Regulator releases new guidance for employers

A new information leaflet for employers aimed at addressing the risks facing defined contribution (DC) scheme members has been launched today by the Pensions Regulator and the Financial Services Authority (FSA).

The leaflet – ‘Guide for employers: talking to your employees about pensions’ – sets out questions that employers may be asked by their employees about pensions and suggests answers and other sources of information that employees can refer to. It is relevant to employers with defined benefit, DC and contract-based schemes.

David Norgrove, Pensions Regulator chair, said: “We expect that employees will approach their employers for information and support – as we know employees consider their employers to be a trustworthy source of information about pensions.”
