Membership

(a)        Fund Member Representative

 

The Board is advised that Mr Paul Phillips has been appointed to fill the vacancy for a Fund Member Representative on the Pension Board with immediate effect, following an open competition in the usual manner.

 

(b)        Members’ Indemnity Insurance .

 

The Board may wish to note that as a consequence of developments and revised advice on the legal status of Pension Boards [since the advice given in  Report CS/16/17  in April 2106  that the work of the Boards  work and that of individual Board members was  covered under the Council’s insurance policies on the grounds it was ‘undertaking work specifically for or on behalf of the County Council’],  the Council’s current insurers have been instructed to issue an endorsement specifically naming the Pension Board on the Council’s Insurance Policy. The Council are currently procuring a new insurance contract to start from January 2018 and it will be a requirement that the new policy also specifically names and covers the Pension Board.
