Cape Town – National Treasury on Friday gazetted new retirement fund regulations that will ensure members of retirement funds get good value for their savings and be able to retire comfortably.

The regulations will be effective from Friday, September 1.

In brief, the regulations compel trustee boards of retirement funds to offer a default in-fund preservation arrangement to members who leave the services of their employers before retirement.
