As you may be aware, the National Pensions (Amendment) Law 2016 passed in the Legislative Assembly and has now been published in the Gazette. 

The Amendments will not come into effect until there is additional public education on the new sections and an Order is issued by Cabinet which will identify the implementation dates for sections.  Please note the Amendment Law does not come into effect upon being published in the Gazette. The Ministry and the DLP is presently working on the implementation plan and further information will be released in the near future.

Until such time as the Amendment comes into effect, the current requirements of the National Pensions Law (2012) remain in effect and employers, employees as well as pension plan administrators and members are expected to comply with these requirements.
