Ombudsman’s Determination

Outcome

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

Complaint summary

Mr S complains that:- 

  • His pension has not been calculated correctly as it does not include the Guaranteed Minimum Pension (GMP) at his date of leaving. He would like L&G to pay him the GMP of £2,500.68 per annum (p.a.) in addition to his pension at age 65. 

  • He is unhappy that the early retirement factor (ERF) was changed from 30% to 46.7%. He says he was never informed by L&G of the change.
