Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
I am writing to you with regards to former employee pension funds. Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to know the following information, please:
1 - Between 2015 and 2019, how many employees had to take their pensions early, and incur and penalty as a result of this? Please break it down in terms of year.
2 - Of that number, how many employees had to take their pension early as a result of poor mental health?
3 - Of that number, how many people were given a right to appeal?
4 - How many people did the WBC support through the appeals process?
5 - How many people, who were suffering mental ill health, were offered reasonable alternatives in place of taking an early retirement?
6 - How many of those cases followed LGPS regulations?
Thank you for your assistance in this manner.
