Mr Hughes’ complaint against WYPA, the Scheme’s administrating authority is about their review of his injury benefit award.

The Deputy Pensions Ombudsman’s determination and short reasons

The complaint should be upheld against WYPA because:

  • WYPA failed to provide adequate information to Mr Hughes about the possibility that his injury benefit might be reviewed; and failed to consider correctly a request for a further review.
