PSIG announces publication of version 2.2 of its Code of Good Practice on Combating Pension Scams
The Pensions Scams Industry Group (PSIG), which was established in 2014 to help protect pension scheme members from scams, has announced the publication of version 2.2 of its Code of Good Practice on Combating Pension Scams.
PSIG Chair, Margaret Snowdon says: “This version of the Code brings scams prevention and developments up to date, we also expect to produce a further update later in the year when regulations supporting the Pension Schemes Act 2021. Alongside the new Code, we include a summary of changes since the last version in June 2019, so that readers can clearly see how the world of scams is evolving.
“We believe this Code is an important part of the solution to pension scams and the result of a lot of hard work by people and organisations who volunteered their valuable time and energy to review and comment on drafts. I am also grateful once again for the Minister for Pension’s support and foreword.”
Snowdon adds: “We have also taken the opportunity to give the Code a facelift and I hope readers will approve of the new livery as well as the separation into user friendly standalone sections, as well as a consolidated version.”
