My partner has been off work since March 2009 due to ill health, he was advised by the CAB not to resign from work, after it became apparent that he can no longer work there, he is an engineer and because of the total neuropathy he has, he would not be allowed to use the high speed equipment.
His firm have never finished him on medical grounds, so as far as we were concerned and clearly the DWP, he was technically still employed by them. He had a letter today from his pension plan people telling him that they want over 2K back from his pension plan, as they had still been paying it in.
Now whilst I understand why they want this, surely they are equally culpable because they have continued paying it in.....to be honest they have never bothered to ask him how he is or have very much contact with him, apart from the first couple of months of his illness.
Also.....why haven't the Pension plan people questioned why only the employers contribution was being paid, for 2 and a half years......can anyone shed any light on what our rights are here?
Many thanks in advance

I am confused. Is your partner still employed by the company? Is he still contributing to his pension?
Might be better in the law forum.

Meanwhile if they think they have overpaid then ought they not be speaking to the folk looking after the pension pot and making a case ?
This has now been re posted in Law and there are quite a few answers in there.
