Actuarial Valuations

Actuarial valuations are made at three yearly intervals in accordance with the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations. The most recent valuation was as at 31 March 2016. Our appointed actuary was Hymans Robertson up to 31 August 2018 and from 1 September 2018 our actuary is Barnett Waddingham. 

The main purposes of actuarial valuations are (a) to assess whether the funds in hand are sufficient to meet the funding target and (b) to assess the contributions required to provide for the benefits, taking account of the assets held. The contributions are designed to enable the funding target to be reached over the remaining working lifetime of pensionable employees.
