Pensions law does not remain static for long! The latest instalment comes in the form of the white paper from the Department for Work and Pensions, “Protecting Defined Benefit Pension Schemes”.

Are we facing a period of steady evolution or an out-and-out pensions revolution? Our series of communications and seminars over the next few months on the changing world of pensions will feature our (R)evolution theme, and we will explore whether the change, and the pace of it, is appropriate.
We will consider some of these themes in more detail in our forthcoming series of pensions breakfast seminars, “The Pensions (R)evolution – The Pace of Change”.
