Please contact the Service Delivery Manager at the Fund Office if you are not happy with the service that you have received, or a decision relating to Fund benefit payments.
If you are still not satisfied, then the following may be helpful.
Internal disputes resolution procedure
Our dispute resolution procedure (IDR) is designed to resolve any dispute between the Trustees, members, prospective members and beneficiaries.
If you are not happy with the response, you can ask for the Trustees Appeals Committee to consider your complaint at stage two of the IDR procedure.
The Pensions Advisory Service (TPAS)
TPAS offers free and impartial guidance to people with workplace and personal pensions. You can contact TPAS at:
11 Belgrave Road
Telephone: 0345 601 2923
If you have gone through both stages of the Trustees' IDR procedure and are still not satisfied with the outcome, you can contact the Pensions Ombudsman. You can contact the Pensions Ombudsman at:
The Office of the Pensions Ombudsman
10 South Colonnade
Telephone: 0800 917 4487
The ombudsman is appointed under the Pension Schemes Act, and investigates and settles complaints and disputes of fact or law connected with pension schemes.
Decisions are legally binding on both parties.
