star this property answer text <p>Valuations of the public service pension schemes are carried out every four years. The valuations set employer contribution rates to ensure the full costs of pensions are recognised and met by employers at the point scheme liabilities arise. The last valuations of the schemes considered the position as at 31 March 2016 and were completed earlier this year. Employer contribution rates have been set and came into effect on 1 April 2019. On 19 January the then Chief Secretary to the Treasury made a written statement (HCWS1286) announcing a pause to the cost control element of the valuations. The pause was necessary following a court ruling that an element of the reforms made to schemes in 2015 gave rise to unlawful discrimination. The matter has been remitted to the Employment Tribunal to determine how the discrimination is to be remedied. The Government has confirmed that it will take steps to remedy the discrimination in all public service pension schemes. Until a remedy is agreed it is not possible to assess the value of the public service pension schemes with any certainty at this time.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The government was clear during the passage of the primary legislation that the cap will have no impact on the majority of public sector workers. We do however accept that there will be some circumstances where it is necessary or desirable to relax the cap. As such, a waiver system is in place for use in exceptional situations, including where imposing the cap would cause genuine hardship.</p><p> </p><p>An impact assessment was conducted and published in the 2016 consultation ahead of the primary legislation. This impact assessment took the inclusion of pension strain into account and can be found <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-a-public-sector-exit-payment-cap/consultation-on-a-public-sector-exit-payment-cap#impact-analysis" target="_blank">here</a>. A further equalities assessment will be conducted on the final version of the regulations. The government is currently considering responses to the consultation on the draft regulations to implement the public sector exit payment cap and will respond to the consultation in due course.</p><p> </p><p>The government believes it is right to include all payments related to exit within the cap. The cap does not affect any pension that a person has earned through their years of service or have any impact on accrued pension rights. The cap ensures additional contribution to that pension made by the employer to fund early access to a pension is limited to no more than £95,000, on account these costs are ultimately funded by the taxpayer.</p>
