Defined Benefit - Employers

Every three years an actuarial valuation is undertaken for defined benefit (DB) pension schemes such as CARE. This is required by legislation. 

The valuation compares the assets of the scheme to the estimated cost of the benefits that have been earned, known as liabilities. If the assets are less than the liabilities then a recovery plan needs to be agreed to provide additional contributions from participating employers. 

The valuation involves assessing the employer covenant, the financial support provided to the scheme by the participating employers, which is an important factor in determining the assumptions used in the calculation of the liabilities.

2022 Valuation

The next triennial valuation of the Scheme will take place at 30 September 2022. We’ll be issuing further information to employers as we approach this date.

If you have any questions about the valuation process, please get in touch with the Employer Relationship Team:
