NATIONAL AUDIT OFFICE REPORT: INVESTIGATION INTO POLICE AND FIREFIGHTERS’ PENSION SCHEME COMMUTATION FACTORS
The National Audit Office (NAO) has today published its report into the above matter. The NAO released the report saying:
“This looks at the chain of events which led to the government paying £711m in compensation to 34,000 pensioners who retired from the Police and Firefighters’ Pension Schemes between 2001 and 2006 without receiving their full pension entitlement. Due to the extent of the legal process in the case, some police and firefighters were retired for over 15 years before they received their full pension entitlement from government.”
Attached to this circular are (i) the NAO’s summary report and (ii) the NAO’s full report.
