Pensions Committee


Previously known as the Pensions Panel, the Pensions Committee is responsible for dealing with the County Council's specialist advisers on pensions, dealing with the investment policy generally and managing Pension Fund investments.


In addition to the Pensions Committee, the ACCESS Joint Governance Committee oversees the execution of the Government’s requirement that Local Government Pension Scheme investments are pooled. The Joint Committee is made up of one elected councillor from the pension committee of each of the 11 constituent councils.


A Pension Advisory Board has also been set up to help West Sussex County Council, as West Sussex Pension Fund Scheme manager, ensure that the scheme complies with legislative requirements and any requirements of the Pensions Regulator.
