Mineworker from Huddersfield

Mr H of Huddersfield was a miner and member of the Mineworkers Pension Scheme. In 1991 he was persuaded by an agent of the Colonial Mutual (now Aviva) to transfer his pit pension of £4,639 to them. Aviva eventually agreed that he had been wrongly advised to transfer his pension and compensation of £84,456 was awarded.
