Ombudsman’s Determination


I do not uphold Mr S’ complaint and no further action is required by SWFRS. 

Complaint summary

Mr S complained that SWFRS and the Council have refused his request to transfer his preserved benefits from the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (PCSPS) to FPSW 2015 on Club transfer terms. 

Mr S says he would have arranged a transfer into FPSW 2015 within a year of joining that scheme, had he been aware that an age discrimination issue had been resolved through legislation. He wants SWFRS to exercise discretion in his case and allow the transfer on Club transfer terms.
