The East Riding Pension Fund (ERPF) has taken the pledge to combat pension scams which will protect member benefits.

This involves the ERPF self-certifying to the Pensions Regulator by way of confirmation that it meets the standards of the pledge.

The pledge includes commitments to raise awareness, educate and protect pension savers, including:

  • Regularly warning members about pension scams
  • Encouraging members asking for cash drawdown to get impartial guidance from Pension Wise
  • Understanding the warning signs of a scam and the best practice for transfers by completing the scams module in the Trustee Toolkit (while encouraging all relevant staff or trustees to do the same)
  • Studying and using the resources on the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) ScamSmart website, the ERPF scams information and the Pension Scams Industry Group (PSIG) code
  • Considering membership of the Pension Scams Industry Forum by contacting PSIG
  • Reporting concerns about a scam to the authorities and communicating this to the scheme member
