PLSA welcomes new PPF consultation

27 September 2017

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has today commented on the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) Levy Estimate 2018/19, and the newly announced consultation on draft levy rules for 2018/19 (press release here).

Joe Dabrowski, Head of Governance & Investment, Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, commented:

“We welcome the consultation and are pleased that the PPF has continued to engage closely with the PLSA and industry in developing the Levy rules.

“The 10% reduction in the Levy proposed today is very welcome news for defined benefit schemes, as is the news that around two thirds of schemes will see a lower levy, and SME’s a 30% reduction in bills.

“The new rules contain a number of other changes, which we will examine with our members more fully during the course of the consultation. Ultimately, the key is ensuring that all schemes pay a levy that properly reflects the risks posed by their sponsors.”
