Local Pension Board

In accordance with legislation, the council, as administering authority of the Hillingdon Fund of the LGPS, created a Local Pension Board, which came into effect from April 2015. Council at its meeting in November 2017 agreed to change the board structure and membership to improve the overall effectiveness and independence of the board.

The Pensions Board is not a decision making body; it has a compliance and scrutiny role to ensure the Pensions Committee effectively and efficiently complies with the code of practice on the governance and administration of public service pension schemes issued by the Pension Regulator.

Additionally, the Pension Board will help ensure that the Hillingdon Pension Fund is managed and administered effectively and efficiently and complies with the code of practice on the governance and administration of public service pension schemes issued by the Pension Regulator.

The membership of the board must be equally split between employer and scheme member representatives with relevant experience and the capacity to represent. Council has determined that membership shall be 2 employer and 2 employee representatives.
