Checklist of Actions for Participating DB Employers

  Avoid cessation events occurring unless you are sure you wish to pay the employer debt in full.  Request a Period of Grace within two months after your last remaining member leaves - a template is available here or from the scheme administrators

 Ensure that you make the required deficiency payments even if you do not currently employ a member of the scheme

 Contact the scheme administrators as early as possible in the process, if you are considering changing the legal status of your church or organisation (for example becoming a CIO, amalgamating or closing)
