Pensions Ombudsman Decision - Clarity

Hi All,

I thought I would just clear up a couple of points in relation to Fridays determination by the Pension Ombudsman – based on the hundreds of emails I have had this morning!!

 

·         Those retiring before 1st December 2001 will not be receiving any payments as the Ombudsman has decided that the factors introduced in 1998 were sufficient.

 

·         Those retiring after 1st December 2006 will not be receiving any payments as the factors were revised as from 1st December 2006 [as a result of a successful legal case by the police Federation]

·         Those retiring between 1st December 2001 and 30th November 2004 will be receiving payments [if applicable] based on the new revised factors provided as of 1st December 2001.

·         Those retiring between 1st December 2004 and 30th November 2006 will be receiving payments [if applicable] based on the revised figures provided as of 1st December 2004.

As yet we have not had sight of the new factors produced by GAD so we are unable to indicate what this means in real terms to those so affected.

 

We will bring pressure to bear if required on the Home Office and Forces to bring a swift conclusion to this matter with the minimum of fuss for our members and at this stage we are hopeful that the payments will be automatic without the need for individual complaints.

Hope this helps answer any queries you may have.

Regards

Steve Edwards
