Pensions Ombudsman Focus 51st Edition

 

Welcome to the 51st edition of the Pensions Ombudsman Focus for the period to May 2016.

This edition looks at the level of due diligence a trustee and administrator of a SIPP should make into a proposed investment; the Trustee’s duty to provide information to members about their benefits in uncertain times; and there is another reminder that in order to claim incorrectly quoted benefits the member must show that he took steps which he otherwise would not have taken and suffered financial loss as a result.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to discuss any of these issues and how they might affect you or indeed any contentious issues on which the Linklaters Pension Dispute Resolution Group may be able to assist.
