Ombudsman’s Determination


I do not uphold Mr L’s complaint and no further action is required by the Respondents.

Complaint summary

Mr L has complained that his Incapacity pension, awarded in 2013, was not increased to a Full Medical Retirement pension on review in 2016.

I am not considering Mr L’s second complaint, that he was not awarded the Full Medical Retirement pension in 2013. This was not accepted for investigation by My Office as it was brought more than three years after the event and is therefore out of time in accordance with Regulation 5 of The Personal and Occupational Pension Schemes (Pension Ombudsman) Regulations 1996 (SI 1996 No. 2475).
