Open consultations

IPSA has launched a consultation about changes to the MPs' pension scheme in response to the McCloud judgment and proposes a redress payment process.

The proposal provides a similar outcome for members’ tax treatment as for members of other public sector pension schemes affected by the McCloud judgment and would be administered by the Parliamentary Contributory Pension Fund, not IPSA.

A small number of technical issues with the pension scheme rules have also come to light over the course of implementing the McCloud changes. We have included our proposals for addressing them in this consultation. We have also asked a general question about the discretions provided to the pension fund Trustees and whether these should be expanded to provide clarity as to the flexibility for the Trustees to address unforeseen issues.
