Royal Mail Pensions Trustees Ltd v Gosling - pension fund provisions not excluded by illustration - Chancery Division 27.11.07
Mrs Gosling worked part-time. Her pension entitlement with the Royal Mail Pension Scheme was pro-rata'd accordingly. On the basis of an illustration she agreed to extra salary deductions to buy extra reckonable service. She later discovered that she would not obtain the amount in the illustration, since it was based on full-time working. The Pensions Ombudsman ordered the Scheme to pay the stated amount. The trustees appealed.
