Critical actions from Q1 2024

We will start to distribute Annual Benefit Statements (ABS) from 1 July and Pension Savings Statements (PSS) from August.

The 2015 Remedy (McCloud) legislation, which came into effect on 1 October 2023, may impact the distribution of this year’s ABS and PSS statements for some members. Members impacted by the 2015 Remedy, who qualify for a PSS, will receive a PSS containing Pension Inputs from 2010/11 to 2022/23 (inclusive), known as the ‘Remedy PSS’. After the Remedy PSS, a separate 2023/24 PSS will be issued.

Once ABS have been distributed, the Scheme Administrator will provide MI of the members in your organisation they have produced statements for. This will be provided to you by 6 September 2024 and further PSS MI will be provided to you following completion of distribution.

Given the complexities surrounding the calculations of pension benefits for the Annual Resource Accounts caused by the 2015 Remedy (McCloud judgment) this year, there has been an exceptional delay in issuing the Pension Disclosure figures for departments.

We have been working with HM Treasury (HMT) and the National Audit Office (NAO) to determine a way forward and it has been decided that departments will be split into two categories.

Departments will either have received their 2023/24 Pension Disclosure figures by 21 June or will have been advised they will receive these by 31 August.

Every participating Civil Service employer of the Civil Service Pension scheme (“the Scheme”) must ensure that they carry out their responsibilities in relation to the administration of the scheme. You can find these responsibilities in the Participation or Admission Agreement, which employers must sign.

Both Civil Service and New Fair Deal employers must complete the Annual Assurance Statement (AAS). If you are a Civil Service employer, your Accounting Officer (AO) must complete the AAS. If you are a New Fair Deal employer, your Chief Executive Officer (CEO) must complete the AAS.

This needs to be completed and sent to MyCSP by 17th July.
