Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am happy to help you today. Is this a genuine redundancy situation?

Ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX of your package you should be paid a sum in lieu of your notice period which should be 12 weeks. That sum should include payments into your pension. Unfortunately, beyond that, you are not legally entitled to compensation for lost pension rights in a redundancy situation as you are only normally entitled to a statutory redundancy payment and to notice. The reason I asked if there was a fair redundancy situation is that if you were being unfairly dismissed then you may be able to claim compensation for lost pension rights (but that does not appear to apply here).
There is nothing, however, to prevent you from trying to negotiate a sum for lost pensions rights. Your employer may agree.
