Getting more help

The Independent Case Examiner (ICE) is a free and impartial service that can investigate your complaint to see whether we’ve dealt with it in the right way.

ICE will only look at your complaint after you’ve been through the full Pension Wise complaints process first. It can’t consider disputes about policy or legal matters.

You’ll need to send them a copy of your complaint as well as letters or emails that we sent in response. ICE usually won’t look at a complaint received more than 6 months after the date of our final response.

You can also ask an MP to refer your complaint to the independent Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. You can get help with finding your MP if you don’t know who they are. The Ombudsman usually only looks at complaints that ICE has already reviewed.
