Pensions Ombudsman update - December 2018

Our latest quarterly edition includes commentary on the following important topics:

  • Pension liberation: trustees required to carry out higher due diligence on transfers.
  • Pension rights: widening employer's duty to advise employees on the financial impact of their decisions.
  • Trustees’ duty of care: incorrect cash equivalent transfer value (CETV) on pension sharing order (PSO) resulting in maladministration.
