TPAS collaborates on a new qualification in pensions guidance
The Pensions Advisory Service (TPAS), the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) & JLT Employee Benefits are pleased to announce that they have started to develop an important new professional qualification. This is aimed at administrators, consultants, financial advisers and insurers who deal with pension scheme members.
The new qualification, the PMI Certificate in Pension Scheme Member Guidance, is set at the equivalent of a Level 4 national qualification and will allow successful candidates to help pension scheme members understand the full range of options available to them.
Marta Phillips OBE CA, former Chief Executive of TPAS, said:
“We welcome this opportunity to work closely with the PMI and the pensions industry to develop this important qualification. Over the last 30 years we have helped millions of people with their pension queries through our helpline and information service. This experience has enabled us to contribute real life examples of what people need to understand their options at retirement, which will form a vital part of this qualification.”
