Pension analysis: the Pensions Ombudsman in Mr N (PO-20156) dealt with a complaint from the widower of a deceased member of the NHS Pension Scheme who complained that he should have received death benefits calculated as if his wife, a locum medical practitioner, had died in actual pensionable service rather than in deferment. The rules governing this benefit are contained in the National Health Service Pension Scheme Regulations 1995, SI 1995/300 (as amended). Wyn Derbyshire of gunnercooke LLP looks at the decision.
