The Case

The court upheld the decision of the Pensions Ombudsman which had rejected the employee's complaint that his employer and the relevant pensions authority had been guilty of maladministration of the pension scheme in quoting to him a likely pension based on 'added years', without the caveat that his entitlement to such a payment had depended on the amount receivable by him in respect of his army pension.
