Commenting on today’s (Tuesday’s) publication of the Pension Protection Fund’s annual report for 2012/13, James Walsh, NAPF EU & International Policy Lead, said:
“It is important for pension scheme members to know that the PPF’s finances are sound and sustainable, so these latest figures make welcome news.
“Although the PPF is now more confident of hitting its long-term targets, the average levy paid by individual pension schemes is set to increase in the short-term, and this remains a concern. The NAPF remains committed to working with the PPF on keeping the levy affordable.”
