Making a complaint
How we can help
Before making a complaint you may wish to have a better understanding of the situation and have questions to ask about your pension. Many of our users have found that after speaking to TPAS that their questions have been answered, their minds have been put at ease and they have no further need to make a complaint.
If you do need to make a complaint: Talk to your scheme first
If you find that you’re not happy with an aspect of your pension scheme, it makes sense to then take your issue directly to the scheme administrator.
Administrators run the scheme and will know all of the rules and how these apply to you.
If they can’t resolve the problem and they have been unable to explain why something is as it is, or if you feel they aren’t dealing with it properly, then you can look to escalate your complaint through your scheme’s Internal Dispute Resolution Process (IDRP).
Once your scheme has considered your complaint through the IDRP, if you are still not happy with the resolution, you may be able to take your complaint to the Pensions Ombudsman.
