Ombudsman’s Determination

Outcome

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

Complaint summary

Mr N complained that the Council refused to exercise its discretionary power to apply the “Rule of 85” to his pension. Applying the Rule of 85 would have protected some of Mr N’s pension from having an early retirement reduction factor applied to it, thereby increasing its overall value.
