Teachers Working Longer Review: final report
Teachers Working Longer Review: final report
Teachers Working Longer Review Steering Group
Nov 2018 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, State Pensions
The Teachers Working Longer Review Steering Group, which was commissioned to review the possible health and deployment implications of teachers working longer as a result of the increase in normal pension age (NPA) in the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) and the link between the NPA and state pension age (SPA), has published its final report. The report focuses on the Group's findings in relation to the impact of working longer in terms of teachers' physical and mental well-being, and employment practices which could support teachers working longer. Amongst its conclusions, the Group recommends that steps be taken to educate and raise knowledge about the TPS, its flexibilities and its ill-health provisions. The Group acknowledges that further evidence still needs to be gathered about the appropriateness of the continued link between the SPA and NPA, as this is not an issue dealt with in detail by the report.

Nearly 90% of public pension savings exposed to global warming despite UN warning
Asset Owners Disclosure Project
23 Oct 2018 United Kingdom Investment - Ethical and SRI, Investment - General, Investment - Management
According to research conducted by the Asset Owners Disclosure Project, only 13% of savings collectively managed by the world's 100 largest public pension funds have undergone formal assessment for exposure to climate-related risks. It is estimated that this leaves £7.5trn of savings unprotected from the economic risks associated with climate change and vulnerable to potential losses in the long term. The research also found that only 10% of the largest public pension funds have made formal pledges to align their priorities with the goals of the Paris Agreement, and that 85% of funds have no formal policy for excluding thermal coal.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government has published a statistical release relating to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) funds in England and Wales for the year 2017-18. According to the release, at the end of March 2018 the LGPS in England and Wales encompassed 5.8 million people, of which 2.0 million are employees currently making contributions to the scheme, 1.7 million are pensioners and 2.1 million are former employees who are entitled to a pension from the LGPS at some point in the future. The statistics have also revealed that total LGPS income in England and Wales in 2017-18 was £17.4bn, which is a like-for-like increase of 21.4% on 2016-17. This increase is mainly due to a rise in employer contributions, which were 27.7% higher in 2017-18 than in 2016-17.

The UK’s lost pension mountain could be worth £20 billion – at least six times higher than previously estimated
The UK’s lost pension mountain could be worth £20 billion
Association of British Insurers (ABI)
17 Oct 2018 United Kingdom Pensions Dashboard, Savings
Research carried out by the Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) on behalf of the ABI estimates that as many as 1.6m lost pensions pots worth £20bn could remain unclaimed. In the study, the PPI surveyed firms representing about 50% of the private DC contribution pensions markets, and from this found 800,000 lost pensions worth an estimated £9.7bn, but believes that the actual figure could be much higher, as the research did not look at lost pensions held in the public sector or with trust-based schemes.
