The Department for Work and Pensions (the “DWP”) has published the long-awaited final version of the regulations implementing the new statutory definition of “money purchase benefits”. The finalised regulations will require trustees to revisit past decisions in far fewer areas than draft regulations published last year suggested, and as a result very few schemes will need to revisit past decisions. The new definition nonetheless will have a significant impact going forwards for schemes with benefits that are recategorised. The new definition is expected to come into force this July.
