Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
What is your specific query in relation to this please, so that I can best advise?
OK I understand. So what are you ideally hoping to achieve given the circumstances please?
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please do not worry and leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. Can I also check when your employment officially terminated please?
Thank you very much for clarifying. the starting point is that you are actually out of time to make a claim as any constructive dismissal claim must be initiated within 3 months of your termination, which means you are a month out of time now.
You cannot force the pension to be released early as this is a case of the scheme rules applying and you leaving, even because of the employer, will not change that. It could actually end up being a case of claiming benefits, or finding another job, which you can do until you can start drawing your pension.
I appreciate this may not be the answer you were hoping for but it is the legal position and all I can tell you is what the law says. I do hope that it at least explains where you stand and I will be happy to clarify anything for you in relation to it. For now, thank you for using our service.
You are most welcome. If you have any further questions about this then please do not hesitate to get back to me and I will be glad to help. All the best
