POA Circulars

110 | 02.07.2020

PENSION CHANGES MADE IN APRIL 2015 AND ILL HEALTH RETIREMENT

Thank you for your responses to the above Circular. The Circular stated that we believe the Government are in breach of the Ruling from the Court as they have yet to remedy the situation and put everyone back to the original schemes pre 2015, this has had a knock on affect to our members who are going through Ill Health Retirement in particular those members who were in classic, but are now in Alpha who we believe are suffering a detriment.

For clarity, at this moment in time we only require those people currently going through the Ill Heath Retirement process to forward their details.

The Deputy General Secretary Joe Simpson, in conjunction with our solicitors want those members to email legal@poauk.org.uk by noon Friday 10th July 2020, so we can pick two cases to go forward to challenge Government.

Thank you for your anticipated support.

Yours sincerely

JOE SIMPSON
Deputy General Secretary
