The future of the public sector pensions
The PPI held a seminar on 23 November 2010 to launch its latest report The Future of the Public Sector Pensions.This research was funded by the Nuffield Foundation and its main goal was to:
Neither the PPI, nor the Nuffield Foundation is either calling for, or arguing against, further reforms of the public sector pensions. The research is intended as a contribution to the ongoing public policy debate about the future of the public sector pension schemes.
This research follows a previous discussion paper published in October 2008 that analysed the impact of reforms on public sector pension schemes undertaken by the previous Labour Government between 2005 and 2008 and a more recent discussion paper published in March 2010, which were also funded by the Nuffield Foundation. The seminar was chaired by Sharon Witherspoon, Nuffield Foundation Deputy Director, and it was attended by over 40 people representing a range of interests across the pensions and the public sector.
Lord Hutton of Furness (Chair of the Independent Public Sector Commission) gave an update from the Independent Public Service Pensions Commission.
Nigel Stanley (Head of Campaigns and Communications from the Trade Union Congress) provided a public sector employee perspective on the reforms to public sector pension schemes.
Mike Taylor (Chief Executive of the London Pension Fund Authority) provided a public sector employer’s perspective on the future reforms. Click here to view the presentation.
