The purpose of this document, which should be read in conjunction with my 2005 Annual Report, is to draw attention to some of the more interesting complaints that have been dealt with by my Office during the last year. During 2005 I issued 76 Final Determinations under Section 139 of the Pensions Act and I have included summaries of 17 of these cases below.In addition, 146 cases were resolved during 2005 by the process of mediation or intervention and I have included summaries of eight of these cases.
I hope that these cases will be of practical benefit to those working in the industry, and particularly to trustees and others involved in dispute resolution. Copies of these summaries are available on my Office’s website.
