These regulations have been laid before Parliament and are expected to come into force on 1 April 2009. The amendments include:

  • allowing trustees of schemes whose sponsoring employer is a European Economic Area credit institution or insurer to apply for entry into the PPF; and
  • allowing the PPF to pay compensation to persons entitled to benefits in respect of deferred or pensioner members who died before the scheme was assessed for PPF eligibility.
