Money purchase deconstructed: Working with the new definition – a checklist for trustees and administrators

However, from the date of the definition change (‘d-day’ – due to be before the end of July 2014), scheme practices may need to be updated. This checklist identifies key areas which trustees and administrators should check when dealing with affected benefits from d-day onwards.
