3 Pension meetings in one evening!


This evening I took part in a zoom Newham Council Pension committee training meeting, open committee meeting  and then exempt committee meeting (no public or press due to discussion of confidential information). 

If you are a pension geek (like me) you may want to watch the public meeting here on youtube. 

Our fund in worth over £1.4 billion and I was pleased that one of the decisions taken this evening is that we will target staff eligible to join the fund who haven't and remind them not only are they missing out on "pay" (the employer pays at least 14% extra of salary into the scheme) but vital life assurance for their spouses and children as well as very valuable protection against serious sickness and accidents.
