Information about Pension Board

The role of the Pension Board is to assist the Council (as the administering authority of the Avon Pension Fund), to secure compliance with:

 

·  the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) regulations

·  any other legislation relating to the governance and administration of the scheme

·  requirements imposed by the Pensions Regulator in relation to the scheme

 

Its role is also to ensure the effective and efficient governance and administration of the scheme.

 

The Board has an advisory role in assisting the Avon Pension Fund by making recommendations about compliance, process and governance.
