Pensions Act 2008

Section 85: Executive members

219.This section makes further amendments to Schedule 6 to the PA 2007 to remove the current requirement that all executive members of the Authority must be employees. Instead, it provides that the Authority may appoint executive members as employees. Consequently, individuals who are not employed by the Authority can become executive members. However, the Chief Executive is always to be an employee of the Authority.

220.Subsection (4) makes consequential changes to paragraph 7 of Schedule 6 so that appropriate terms and conditions of appointment can be set.
