Local Government Pension Scheme (PO-21047)
Mr S’ complaint is upheld and to put matters right
Mr S’ complaint about the Council is that he was incorrectly informed, on a consistent basis, that he could use his transferred in AVCs to purchase additional pension within the LGPS when he retired. In reliance of this information he transferred his AVCs into the LGPS in 2002. In 2017 he was informed that the information he had been given was incorrect. His loss is that he is now unable to obtain a benefit of equivalent value, either within the LGPS or on the open market. He says that had he been aware of the correct position he would have made additional contributions and managed the investment of his AVC fund more carefully.
