Welcome to the latest edition of our quarterly pension disputes bulletin.

In this edition we cover:

  • recent cases on data and cyber security, GMP equalisation, ill health early retirement and investment issues
  • key legislative and regulatory developments in response to Covid-19, including the recent changes to the UK insolvency regime, pensions related guidance and the steps that must be taken to alert members to the heightened risk of pension scams
  • recent case law that further clarifies the courts’ approach on issues such as construing pension increase rules, switching from RPI to CPI and rectification, and
  • recent Ombudsman decisions relating to member communication, pensions and tax disputes.

If you have any queries about any of these developments speak to your usual HSF adviser or contact a member of our pension disputes team.
