Ombudsman’s Determination


I do not uphold Mr Y’s complaint and no further action is required by the Trustees or the Employer.

Complaint summary

Mr Y’s complaint concerns that, following the buy-out of his Scheme benefits with an insurer (the Buy-Out), not all of his pension is being increased to reflect increases in the cost of living.

He is also dissatisfied that any Scheme surplus following the Buy-Out will not be used to provide future benefits for members.
