We have recently employed a new Clerk following the retirement of the previous one. No one on the current Council has much understanding of pension schemes. So I would like some advice:
1. Does the Council decide the pension provider or can the Clerk decide?
2. I'm sure I read somewhere that the Council decides how much they as employer contributes but worried there might be some rules somewhere.
3. The previous Clerk was in Nest, the new one, was previously in LGPS. I've heard this is very expensive.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
