IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OFFICERS WHO HAVE REACHED THE AGE OF 55 YEARS DURING THE TIME CAPITA WERE PENSION PROVIDERS
An earlier Branch circulation advised that some officers may have not received an increase to their pension when reaching the age of 55 due to an error by the pension administrators CAPITA when handing over to Kier. This has be evident in other force areas which CAPITA were pension administrators.
Having queried this with Mr Peter Skelton the Head of Gloucestershire Constabulary Finance he has advised me that Kier has been tasked to review and all officers who reached reached 55 years of age during the time CAPITA were the administrators to check whether their pension is correct. There apparently have been a number of issues with the information transferred from Capita and report will be made to the next South West Police Pensions Board in October at which NARPO will be represented. in the mean time officers who fall into this category should check their pension payment to ensure they had the entitled increase and if not contact Kier.
In addition to the information above I have now been advised today by Mr Peter Skelton -
