Common concerns

Compensation

Even in the best run schemes mistakes can happen or things can take too long. If something going wrong means you are worse off, you could be entitled to compensation to make good that loss.

The information on this page is here to help you understand what compensation means depending on the type of loss you may have experienced.

Financial loss

The purpose of compensation is to try and put you back in the position you would have been in, had nothing gone wrong. In other words, compensation should be enough to make sure you are not worse off because of someone’s mistake or delay.  

Non-financial loss

Compensation may also be payable if you have suffered significant upset or disappointment.   Awards are usually modest.    

In the first instance it is always best to contact your pension provider to talk to them about what has happened and give them a chance to put things right.  If you are not sure how to go about this or you want to talk through your concerns first, we are happy to help and you can contact our helpline on 0300 123 1047.

It's always best to put something in writing to your provider or the organisation you are complaining about and make a note of who you spoke to and on what dates so that you can keep a record of what you have asked them to address.  If you're unhappy with their reply, you can either escalate your complaint through your scheme’s Internal Dispute Resolution Process (IDRP) or discuss your case with the Pensions Ombudsmen.
