What do you need to consider?

There are a whole range of issues that pension trustees, employers and their advisers are facing as a result of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

You should focus your activities on the key risks to pension savers:

  • benefits need to be paid
  • the risk of scams needs to be minimised
  • employers need to continue contributing
  • savers need support to make good decisions in these challenging circumstances
  • some administrative breaches of the law may occur and we will maintain a proportionate and fair approach to any action we may take

The Pensions Regulator will continue to provide guidance in response to emerging challenges and impacts.
