Hello Jenny, the contract wording is as follows:
"After the completion of six months continuous service with the company the Employee will be eligible to join the Company's occupational pension scheme subject to the rules of that scheme from time to time in force."
Yes I verbally asked the Financial controller Shirish Patel and he said that he would check my contract to see if I was eligible.
I heard nothing more and did not chase it as I assumed that it was just done.
My employment ended in Sep 2012.
I have recently carried out a review of all my pensions and it was during this that it became apparent that I had no pension with the company in question. Up until that point I had always assumed that the pension was in place. The amount of money that the company should had contributed was around £2000.
No, I have nothing of that nature.
Sorry for the delay, I do not have continual email access as I am work on site alot.
What would be my route to claim as I would like to make reference to this in any letter that I send to he company.
Actually this is now resolved, I had been in contact with the employer in the background and they have offered me a full settlement. Thank you very much for your help.
