This dissertation considers issues arising from the interaction between the defined benefit pension schemes and their sponsoring employers. If the pension scheme is in deficit - so has liabilities in excess of the assets held - then the shortfall must be made up by the sponsor; if there is a surplus of assets over liabilities, then the sponsor can use this to reduce the level of contributions payable.
