Ombudsman’s Determination

Outcome

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

My reasons for reaching this decision are explained in more detail below.

Complaint summary

Mr D complains that the Trustees did not inform him that the early retirement pension available to him from the MPS since June 2009 would affect his means-tested State benefits. As a result, Mr D considers that he has suffered a significant financial loss.
