Taking care of your Local Government Pension in Shropshire

Reporting Breaches

There is a requirement for all individuals with a role in the LGPS (including members of the Committee, members of the Local Pension Board and officers) to report breaches of law when they have reasonable cause to believe that a breach has occurred.

All individuals with a role in the LGPS have a duty to report breaches of Law when they have reasonable cause to believe that:

  • A legal duty relevant to the administration of the scheme has not been, or is not being, complied with; and
  • The failure to comply is likely to be of material significance to the  Pensions Regulator.

Breaches can occur in relation to a wide variety of the tasks normally associated with the administrative function of a scheme such as keeping records, internal controls, calculating benefits and making investment or investment-related decisions.

In line with guidance issued by the Pensions Regulator, Shropshire County Pension Fund has developed a policy and procedure for ensuring those responsible for reporting and whistle blowing can identify, assess and report (or record if not reported) a breach of law relating to the Fund. The Fund’s reporting Breaches Policy can be found at the bottom of this page.
