No. I started work in 1988. There was a scheme running but I was not allowed to join it. My job or hours have not changed but in 2000 I was given the option to join which I did. My employer also makes a contrition.
My question is can I make a claim that I should have been allowed to join from the beginning and, if so, can I claim anything.
I work at a school and in 1988 the pension was for teaching staff only.
I do not know what happened in 2000 I was just asked if I wanted to join.
