The Pension Schemes Office (PSO) will complete its integration with the Inland Revenue on April 2 which will see the UK government office lose its executive status.
PSO will become part of a larger Revenue group called IR Savings, Pensions, Share Schemes.
The PSO said the reorganisation aims to bring related areas of work into discrete business areas to help us improve the service we provide. A PSO update said: Some of our operational and technical work has been concentrated in a few specialist offices with policy work being carried out centrally. Savings, Pensions, Share Schemes will have responsibility from policy development through to service delivery in areas of responsibility.
The Revenue believes bringing policy work closer to policing and administering schemes will make life easier for users of the departments.
All existing offices and staff will be maintained, although the PSO will no longer be classified as a separate part of the Revenue.
Revenue press officer David Gostelow said: The purpose of the integration is to streamline all of our executive offices which will modernise the Inland Revenue and make us more efficient. The actual day-to-day running of the PSO will not change neither will its staff.
