The autumn could see developments in these important areas:

  • the introduction of the new definition of "money purchase benefits": a consultation is expected on the crucial transitional arrangements;
  • news on the DWP’s exploration of GMP conversion as a possible route to equalisation and
  • a consultation on the details of "pot follows member" i.e. the automatic transfer of small pots to the new employer’s scheme and the end of short service refunds from DC schemes from 2014.
