Pension Clicks
In this edition of Pension Clicks, we examine the implications of the Penson Schemes Act receiving Royal Assent, release the findings of our new DC employee research and invite you to take our short de-risking survey.
Pension Schemes Act 2021
The Pension Schemes Act received Royal Assent in February. This provides the legal framework for pensions dashboards, effective governance of climate change risks and CDC schemes. In addition, it sets out new criminal offences and new powers for the Pensions Regulator, together with provisions to support long-term objectives in DB scheme funding.

Cyber threats to corporate pension schemes
The threats that cyber incidents pose to pension schemes have gone from unrecognised to unmissable in just a few years. In response, Aon launched the Pension Cyber Scorecard — a tool for UK trust-based pension schemes to assess their cyber resilience.
Our new report highlights the results to date, providing an insight into the extent of cyber controls and governance that trustees have in place.

Aon in the press
This month, our DC member survey reveals a worsening retirement savings gap for UK employees, and we believe that Royal Assent for the Pension Schemes Bill opens the way for Collective DC schemes. Our cyber scorecard reveals a mixed state of cyber security among UK pension schemes and Aon is appointed to provide administration services to the General Motors UK Pension Schemes. We believe the outlook for future longevity in the UK has not necessarily worsened as a result of the pandemic.
