The Irish Association of Pension Funds are the leading voice for Irish workplace pension schemes. We seek to influence the future direction of pensions in Ireland so as to increase the financial security of all retired people. We represent members' interests at all levels by actively lobbying the Government, the Pensions Board, the Revenue Commissioners, the Social Partners and other relevant agencies.
We are also the leading provider of pensions information and hold conferences, seminars and training courses that help our members keep updated on all areas relating to pensions in Ireland.
As we move closer to the 30th June deadline, Elma Fox will outline some practical examples of what some schemes have done to try and meet the standard. This will be followed by a presentation by Peter Fahy who will review the legal implications of the Waterford Crystal judgement and what it may mean for Trustees, Employers and the State.
