It’s expected that the amendment Bills may be consolidated year in year out and the Bill finally passed by the House will be incorporated into the the Pension Reform Act and named after the year it is passed into Law.

The 1st Pension Reform Act was signed into law in June 2004 while the 2nd was signed in June 2014, if the National Pension Commission follows this trend the next amendment to the Pension Reform Act will be in June 2024. However, considering the frequency of the amendment bills and the current growth rate in the industry, it’s possible that we could see a new law in 2022. We are tracking the industry and will provide updates once available.
