Complaint summary

Mr D’s widow, Ms H has complained that Mr D’s reliance on the benefit statements he received from the Administrators between 2001 and 2016 resulted in him incurring a financial loss. Ms H has also complained that as a result of the incorrect statements Mr D received from the Administrators, her dependant’s pension benefits are lower than she and Mr D had expected.
