Ombudsman’s Determination

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

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

Complaint summary

Mr R has complained that the Scheme is changing the annual increases from the RPI inflation rate to that of the CPI rate. He would like the Pensions Ombudsman to investigate and decide if the Trustee is allowed to do this.
