Shropshire County Pension fund

Taking care of your Local Government Pension in Shropshire

Employer Discretions Policies

Every Employer in the Shropshire County Pension Fund must prepare and publish a written statement detailing how they as the employer intend to exercise certain employer discretions. This is known as a Discretions Policy and once finalised, a copy of the policy should be shared with the Fund.

Once the Fund has received an employer’s Discretions Policy, it is published below to allow you, as scheme members, to check what your employer’s policies are on issues such as flexible retirement and early payment of unreduced benefits.

Some of the discretions listed will also require the agreement of the Pension Fund as well as your employer. The Governance Compliance Statement outlines the Fund’s current policy.

If your employer is listed below and there is no policy attached, this is because a policy has not yet been shared with the Fund.
