Pension Ombudsman decision - Milne vs GAD - Update

November 2015: Following the Pensions Ombudsman's recent Determination on the complaint brought by Mr W Milne it has been agreed that additional payments are to be made to scheme members whose pension commenced between:

Males:           1st December 2001 and 21st August 2006 (for Firefighters) or
                     1st December 2001 and 30th November 2006 (for Police)
Females:       1st December 2004 and 21st August 2006 (for Firefighters) or
                     1st December 2004 and 30th November 2006 (for Police)

and who chose to commute their pension for lump sum at retirement. This is to address the Ombudsman's conclusion that the scheme's commutation factors should have been reviewed before 2006.

The Milne Team are now finalising the redress calculations and payments will be made to the majority of retired scheme members along with their monthly pensions between 13th November and 1st December 2015. Advisory letters will be issued prior to payments being made.
