The new DC Code and Guides

The Pensions Regulator's new Code of Practice on money purchase benefits came into force on 28 July 2016. At the same time, the accompanying six Guides were updated and published in final form. Together, the DC Code and Guides apply to all money purchase benefits in occupational pension schemes, including Additional Voluntary Contributions in otherwise defined benefit schemes.

We have updated our Insight (originally published in June) to reflect the Pensions Regulator's final position. You will see we have produced both an updated version of our Insight and also a version which sign posts what has changed between the original form of the Code and the Pensions Regulator's final version.

In addition, we are holding a webinar on Thursday, 15 September 2016 at 13:00, at which our speakers will consider how the new DC Code and Guides can be applied to best effect for schemes. Register for the webinar here.
