Ombudsman’s Determination


I do not uphold Miss K’s complaint and no further action is required by TP. 

Complaint summary

Miss K complained that TP did not recognise her as Mr S’ partner when he died. This resulted in her not receiving his death grant or surviving partner’s pension from the Scheme.

Miss K submitted that she lived with Mr S for 16 years, so she asked for TP’s decision to be reversed.
