No action is required by members or employers at this time. The revised processes introduced as part of the easements will continue as they have been since April 2020.
The easements were rapidly introduced as a temporary solution in response to the unique and unprecedented circumstances of March 2020. They were designed to allow members and employers to continue to transact with the Scheme Administrator during lockdown. These included a number of temporary changes relating to how we could accept documents, certificates and wet signatures from members and claimants via email and scanned images.
For more information on the easements that were introduced, please see EPN602.
Following discussions with and feedback from employers, we can now confirm that easements will remain in place 31 May 2022.
However, we are currently reviewing all of the easements that were introduced to understand what can remain in place to support members and employers, and will communicate this ahead of 30 April 2022.
