Why you should attend

This is the second event by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Pension Scams and it is taking place on Tuesday, September 14th September from 6pm to 8pm, on Zoom. All event logistics are being taken care of by the APPG’s Secretariat, the Transparency Task Force.

The Purpose Statement of the APPG on Pension Scams is:

“To be a forum through which Parliamentarians and other stakeholders can work together to better protect the public from the perils of pension scams and secondary scammers; give scam victims a representative collective voice; signpost victims to support; and facilitate the development of preventative and supportive policy initiatives.”

The event is all about the many excellent recommendations for reform that were put into the Work and Pensions Select Committee’s excellent Report on Pension Scams and also the response to it from  the Government, Financial Conduct Authority and The Pensions Regulator.

The overall purpose of the event is to galvanise support on what should now be done to push for the kind of positive, progressive and purposeful reforms that are still needed.

In particular, we will be shining a light on the inappropriately punitive way that HMRC treats pension scam victims; this is a major problem that has caused intolerable levels of harm and anxiety that needs to be resolved
