Using DB schemes to help improve outcomes in the event of redundancy
As the economic consequences of COVID-19 continue to bite, many employers are making difficult decisions in relation to the size and shape of their workforce. At the same time, job prospects for those who find themselves unemployed are bleak – many older employees are finding themselves needing to cover a financial gap that could stretch for 10 years or more until they receive their State Pension. Andy Gaskell explores how DB pensions can help members and employers improve outcomes.

Aon in the press
This month, we believe that the risk settlement market dynamics in 2021 may be the best yet for UK pension schemes. We think that The Pensions Regulator’s approach to long-term targets will increase the financial pressure on scheme sponsors, and find that four in 10 UK pension schemes see the need for speed on GMP equalisation of historic transfers.
