Specialist Services

Designing & Implementing a Pension Administration Strategy (PAS)

A PAS is critical to ensuring that you are receiving and managing data effectively. LPP can work with you and your scheme employers to design a tailored PAS that will help to enhance service delivery and recoup additional costs from employer.
 

Data Cleansing Services

Accurate data saves time, money, and meets the requirements set out by the Pensions Regulator. We can help you analyse and cleanse your data as well as identify and resolve underlying data management issues.

 

Pension Services Health Check

Our pension services health check goes beyond data to consider your systems and processes as well. Using customised reporting tools, data analysis techniques and one-to-one discussions with your internal experts, we’ll fully analyse your pension administration function. We’ll use the information we gather to provide a comprehensive assessment and recommendations for improvements.
 

Technical Pensions Services

LPP’s technical pensions team can help you navigate the rapidly changing and complex regulatory environment of LGPS, Fire and Police pension schemes. We can provide guidance, help you prepare reports and consultation responses, assistance with calculations and communications, and even attend committee meetings to assist your officers.

 

Managing Trivial Commutation & Small Pot Pension Services

Identifying, calculating and paying trivial commutation and small-pot pension liabilities is a complex area of work. LPP has a team with the expertise and experience to help your scheme manage this process.
 
Grant reductions and spending cuts have had significant impacts on public sector organisations. Many are even going into administration to meet their pension liabilities, which can shift significant financial burdens onto other employers within the scheme. LPP can help you manage these risks through annual covenant checks. Since 2013 our expert team has provided covenant checks for more than 600 LGPS employers, and offer sector-specific covenant checks for social housing associations, charities, further education colleges, academies and universities.
