My Department works closely with the Department for Work and Pensions on a range of issues that are relevant to Scotland.

The Government believes that the existing arrangements provide sufficient flexibility for employers to manage their section 75 debts and that maintaining the current calculation method is the most viable way of ensuring that members receive their pension benefits over the longer term.
