About First Actuarial's Current Issues training course

It’s not easy keeping up with the stream of changes in Defined Benefit pensions. And the legal penalties of acting on outdated information are becoming harsher. Our regular Current issues courses help trustees plan for change.

Is this training course right for me?

If you’re a trustee of a defined benefit pension scheme, our half-day course is designed to bring you bang up to date on the latest issues in this area.

  • The Pension Regulator’s
    • Annual Statement on Funding
    • Recent Determinations
  • An introduction to Collective Defined Contribution (CDC) pensions
  • PASA administration standards
  • Pensions Ombudsman case studies

First Actuarial case studies


The RSPB was determined to minimise the impact of its new defined contribution scheme on employees, and appointed First Actuarial to support the transition and select a provider with strong ethical values.

“I would definitely recommend working with First Actuarial. Their consultants went over and above the call of duty to make sure the project progressed smoothly.”


The Kennel Club

Concerned about the risk of an Employer contribution increase as a result of high liabilities, Trustees of the Kennel Club Pension Fund turned to First Actuarial.

“They’re extremely professional and helpful. Their input always seems sound, logical and well presented. First Actuarial handled the transition well, they provide us with helpful guidance, and have delivered what they promised when they pitched for the work.”


Bolton Cares

Taking responsibility for care services previously provided by a local authority, Bolton Cares turned to First Actuarial for help in setting up a competitive and affordable DC pension scheme for its staff.

“They’ve been really helpful and professional throughout the project, and we’ll use them again if we need specialist advice.”
