On 27 January 2015 the Government announced that trustees of pension schemes will be required to ask members seeking to access their money purchase pension savings about key aspects of their circumstances relating to the choice that they are making and give relevant risk warnings in response to the answers.


The DWP and Pensions Regulator are currently working on the detail, which has not yet been published. Once this is known, trustees will need to promptly consider the implications for their retirement processes and member communications.
