Ombudsman’s Determination

Outcome

I do not uphold Mr S’ complaint and no further action is required by NWFC or CWCC.

Complaint Summary

Mr S complains that NWFC, his former employer, and CWCC, the Administering Authority, should have considered his application for ill health retirement (IHR), as if he were still employed by NWFC. Mr S says that had he not resigned and remained an employee, then NWFC may have terminated his employment on the grounds of capability and he would have been entitled to an IHR pension.
