Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter. As your father was on TUPE, any employment conditions would automatically carry on.
However, it is very possible that what they are telling you is correct. Very often in work insurance for injury and death do have an age restriction on them. Unlike age discrimination for work, this would not be considered age discrimination.
Whether the policy the company had or has, contains an age limit, you would need to find out from the employer.
You should request a copy of the policy from the HR department, or from the insurers if you know who they are. It could also be included in any policy documents your father may of had about the scheme.
Really there would be little you could do.
You can not control age restrictions, so if they existed, your fathers enrolment would have ended at the upper age limit.
