key issues broad agreement
Key issues – broad agreement
  • Subject to final cost package
  • Case for reform
  • Final salary scheme
  • Accrual rate – 60ths instead of 80ths plus 3/80ths lump sum
  • Death in service grant increased to 3 years
  • Partners pensions including cohabitees
  • Flexible retirement
  • Equality impact
key issues ill health
Key issues – Ill health
  • Current provision – permanent incapacity in job or comparable
  • New provisions – broad agreement
    • No reasonable prospect of gainful employment by 65
    • Unlikely do gainful employment in reasonable period (3-5yrs)
  • TU side 3rd tier – gainful employment shorter period. Payment equal to accrued pension until secure employment.
  • Pension protection extended to ill health.
key issues contributions
Key issues - Contributions
  • Working assumption - average 6.3%
  • Tiered contribution rates like tax mechanism (E&W banded)
  • Preferred number of tiers to be agreed.
  • Illustrative examples in consultation – 3, 5, 7 tiers
  • Employer contributions meet the balance
key issues cost sharing governance
Key issues – cost sharing & governance
  • Employers want 2:1 ratio, employer to employee contributions
  • e.g. total cost 18.9% payroll – employee pay 6.3%
    • Excludes investment risk and past deficits
    • Probably reasonable as approximate guide
  • Mechanism for review – trigger if costs shift significantly
  • Governance proposals
    • Cost sharing means members entitled to a greater say
    • Options from 50% trustees to improved consultation
key issues transition arrangements
Key Issues – Transition arrangements
  • Benefits better in new scheme.
  • Options for transition
    • Simplest - all service is transferred and new benefits apply
      • Year for year would incur significant cost
      • Transfer value would reduce years of pensionable service
    • Alternative – two calculations, pre and post 2009
    • Neither impact on ability commute into lump sum
