Ombudsman’s Determination

Outcome

I do not uphold Mr F’s complaint and no further action is required by the Administrator or the Council.

Complaint summary

Mr F’s complaint is that the Council and the Administrator did not permit payment of unreduced early retirement benefits on compassionate grounds.

Mr F has also complained that the Council and the Administrator reached this decision by exercising powers conferred by the Council’s Discretions Policy (the Discretions Policy) under Regulation B30 of the Scheme Regulations 2013, which had been amended since he left employment. Mr D believes the decision should have been made under the version of Regulation B30 in force in 2010.
