More financial incompetence from agencies and bought-in services - this time affecting pensions! "Thousands of retired public sector workers face having their pensions reduced after a massive overpayments blunder. Huge numbers of ex-military personnel and NHS staff are said to be caught up in the chaos, which is thought to date back years." Full Story http://news.uk.msn.com/uk/article.aspx?cp-documentid=11941944 And before anyone jumps up and down and starts trying to make (or refute) political arguments, the article states that this may have been going on for decades so while it is unclear who actually appointed the agency involved it is pretty clear that the problems occurred and continued during both Labour and Tory administrations. Clearly I am eagerly waiting for a bit more clarity on this to see if I am going to be among those directly affected!!!!
