Handling Pension Scheme Disputes - A Guide to Overpayments
It can be common for pension scheme trustees and administrators to make errors in relation to pension entitlement, resulting in inflated benefit statements being sent to members and more often, an overpayment of pension benefits. This leaves trustees battling with members in an attempt to recover overpaid benefits, ultimately resulting in instructing lawyers.
This webinar, aimed at pension lawyers, discusses causes of action, defences and remedies, together with likely outcomes, illustrated by recent case law.
What You Will Learn
This webinar will cover the following:
- Legal principles of unjust enrichment, restitution and recoupment, relied on by trustees
- Legal requirements of the equitable defence of estoppel, relied on by members and illustrated by case law
