Willis Towers Watson Trustee Training - 2019

Trustees and the law

Since 1 February 2010, it has been a legislative requirement (under Section 59AA of the Pensions Act, 1990) that pension scheme trustees undergo appropriate training:

  • Within six months of appointment for new trustees
  • At least every two years for existing trustees

Where a trustee fails to undertake the required training, the Pensions Authority can impose an on-the-spot fine.

How can we help?

Willis Towers Watson has many years of experience in providing training for trustees and our courses are designed to support trustees’ needs and deliver to their requirements. Our trustee courses are suitable for newly appointed trustees, trustees with some experience who wish to refresh their knowledge, and also HR and finance professionals with pension responsibilities.

In 2019 courses will be available to cover both Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution trustee training requirements:
