Pensions Disputes

We can work with you to manage pension disputes. If you are a member, we suggest that you use the scheme’s internal dispute resolution procedure. You could also contact The Pensions Advisory Service that helps people resolve and mediate pension problems.

Our work with employers and trustees includes:

  • pension disputes through the courts, the Pension Ombudsman or internal dispute resolution procedures
  • advising on the equalisation of pension benefits between the sexes
  • advising on the provision of benefits for same sex couples
  • advising on the issues that arise when overpayments have been made and the means of correcting them
  • advising on the impact of age discrimination legislation on benefit design and liability reduction exercises
  • advising on identifying and managing conflicts of interest

Latest testimonials

"The young lady [Tiffany Benson] from Northampton who came down to see me was absolutely great. I went into the appointment with great fears and came out feeling as though a load of weight had been taken from my shoulders and my fears seemed less. Many thanks to her."
Miss E

"Tiffany Benson was entirely professional and efficient in her handling of a difficult situation I found myself in trying to deal with another firm of Solicitors. Her approach was direct and supportive and she always kept me up to date with each step. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tiffany."
Miss S

"We found Hewitsons helpful and informative in our initial discussions, with costs and benefits of various approaches made clear. Once engaged, they were proactive and kept us well informed of progress. Although our particular claim was reasonably complex, it was pursued rigorously, and with a very satisfactory outcome".
