Pensions Ombudsman: remedies

This note considers the remedies that the Pensions Ombudsman can order. The note looks at whether the Ombudsman is restricted to making the same orders that the court would be able to make, as well as commenting on his powers to award damages for distress and inconvenience, and reimbursement of a complainant's legal costs.
