NOTED for signature by the Chairman


Joint Meeting of Pension Committee and Pension Board

Consideration of any issues required to be raised.


The Chairman invited those present to raise any matters which had been discussed at the joint meeting. In response to a question regarding delays in guaranteed minimum pension calculations, Mr Angus explained that there had been a delay in receiving information from HMRC at the start of the process and that all of the information required had been received. The work undertaken on the Members Self Service and COSLA pay award had meant that pensioner payments needed to be recalculated and backdated to January 2021, which was ongoing and had been prioritised. Ms Robb undertook to provide more information on awards that the Fund had been shortlisted for.

AGREED that there were no issues to raise.
