About this webinar:
On the back of high profile business failures, the government and The Pensions Regulator (TPR) are making the biggest changes to pension scheme funding since 2005 when TPR was formed. A new Funding Code of Practice is expected in 2020 with a focus on strengthening DB funding, increasing member security and reducing risks. Absent any other action, the new rules could see the deficit in a typical scheme rise by 50% and deficit contributions double, reflecting the intention for higher deficits to be met more rapidly.
