On 18 November, the PPF revealed proposals to further tailor scheme levies to reflect specific risk posed by individual schemes.  

Two key features of the proposals are to:  

  • assess the probability of a scheme’s sponsoring employer becoming insolvent during a 5-year period, in addition to the assessment of the same robability over a one-year period, as currently; and  
  • take account of the risk that a scheme’s investment strategy poses to the PPF when calculating its individual levy.  

The consultation ends on 13 February 2009.
