Contact us

The Council’s Pension Staff are trained to assist you with any queries you have in relation to your local government pension. Feedback is very important to us to improve our service.

If you have a question about our services or require additional information in relation to your pension which you are unable to find on our webpages, please go to the section ways to contact us.

Complaints and compliments

Many queries and minor disagreements can be resolved quickly by contacting Islington Pensions Office.

Feedback is very important to us and we want to hear from you if you feel we have got something wrong or left you feeling dissatisfied. By sharing your experience, it will allow us to clarify or put right any misunderstandings/errors and help us to improve our services. 

If you feel that we have done a good job and/or a staff member has made a great effort in resolving your query, please let us know. Any compliments or comments on our service are welcomed.

If we cannot resolve your complaint informally and you are still dissatisfied with a decision made in relation to the scheme you can ask for it to be looked at again under the formal complaint procedure called the Internal Dispute Resolution Procedure (IDRP).

The Pensions Ombudsman

The Pensions Ombudsman (TPO) is an independent and impartial organisation set up by law to help resolve complaints about pension schemes.

TPO can investigate and determine all complaints and disputes involving maladministration of the scheme. The decisions of TPO are final and binding on the claimant and the local authority.

TPO will only consider cases that have first tried to be resolved through the Internal Dispute Resolution Procedure. Complaints to TPO should be made within three years of the event or three years from when the applicant first knew about it. TPO has the discretion to extend the time limit, in special circumstances.
