A DWP consultation is underway on the Occupational Pension Schemes (Miscellaneous Amendments No.2) Regulations 2013, which as the name suggests, provide for a variety of technical changes to existing pension legislation. The draft regulations provide a limited power for trustees to amend their scheme rules to reflect changes in the state pension age. They also deal with various changes that are necessary following the use of CPI instead of RPI in the calculation of indexation of benefits. Once in force, they will amend existing regulations relating to transfer rights, indexation of pension credit benefits, indexation of pension credit benefits held within a cash balance scheme and bridging pensions. The consultation ends on 14 November. For the consultation document and the draft Regulations go to: http://www.dwp.gov.uk/docs/occ-pen-misc-amdts-2-regs2013consultation.pdf
