AMPS surveys members on unisex GAD rates
Written by Andrew Roberts on 10th Feb 2012 10:30 am 2987


The Association of Member-Directed Pension Schemes (AMPS), the trade body for SSAS and SIPP providers, has set up an online survey for its members to complete so that it can gain feedback on the implementation of unisex GAD rates, and opinions on other topics such as the reduction in maximum drawdown from 120% to 100% of annuity rates.

 

AMPS Chairman, Andrew Roberts said: “The ECJ ruling on gender-neutral pricing of insurance premiums and benefits has a knock-on effect on drawdown rates.   This could lead to further changes to the underlying GAD tables in the next 12 months.  Whilst we fully understand that the UK has to comply with the ECJ ruling, it is unfortunate that the revision could occur within two years of the last revision.  This doesn’t add to consumer confidence in being able to plan for their retirement.”

 

Member firms of AMPS who provide SIPP and SSAS drawdown products, together with software providers, are encouraged to complete the survey by logging on to www.ampsonline.co.uk. The survey is only available to member firms.
