In LGPS (NI) we are addressing the McCloud discrimination by extending ‘underpin’ protection to the younger members of the scheme the courts found had been treated unlawfully. In the LGPS (NI), the underpin had been the means through which transitional protection was provided to older members.
In this consultation we seek views on specific issues regarding the remedy and welcome responses from across the LGPS (NI) community on these issues. Some points are issues we covered in our 2020/21 consultation, where we want to obtain further views before making final decisions (for example, aggregation and flexible retirement). Others are issues for the LGPS (NI) that we have not previously consulted on (for example, compensation and interest).
