Complaint summary

Mr R has referred an appeal of a decision by the Board’s Reconsideration Committee (the Committee) dated 29 March 2022. Mr R’s referral is that when he asked for retirement quotes in March 2021, the PPF was not open and transparent about possible changes to the compensation figures.
