As follows:

We are making some changes to the Family Pooling rules which will come into effect on 27 April 2016.

From this date:

  1. ‘Pilot Gold’ members will be permitted to participate in a Family Pool as either a contributor or a beneficiary
  2. Limitations to the number of contributor and beneficiary changes within a Family Pool will apply as follows: (a) A beneficiary will be permitted to have a maximum of 5 Contributing Accounts in any calendar year; (b) A contributor may contribute to a maximum of two Beneficiary Accounts in any calendar year
  3. Where a new Family Pool is created or an existing Family Pool is changed, the contributor will be required to specify his or her relationship to the beneficiary.

Under the current Terms and Conditions, a Family Pool can only consist of a total of six family members (including the beneficiary), with a maximum of two members aged 18 years old or over. If a member within a Family Pool is approaching their 18th birthday and the Family Pool already has two members over 18 years old, all members within the pool will now receive an email alerting them to make changes to their Family Pool to ensure it continues to meet requirements.

Won't impact many.

I suspect they may have discovered some accounts using an expanded definition of family?
