    • I think I know the answer , but We booked our dog into boarding kennels for our holiday , starting Tuesday 16 Unfortunately about 2 weeks ago the dog picked up a parasite called giardia .this causes soft stools etc . The vet gave us the treatment and said the dog “should “ be ok in time for the boarding .A side effect of the treatment is that the dog has still has soft stools , similar the those when the parasite is present We messaged the kennel Friday , explaining the situation , also topping up the final payment , It appears the kennel did not receive the message , so we spoke yesterday ( Monday ) They were unsure as to whether the dog should be accepted . over night they massaged us and cancelled the booking , we do have a plan “B” this involves our daughter moving  back home for a week . Their T&Cs are quite tight , regarding cancelation by the client , But in this case they cancelled , have I got a hope of getting a refund , less , say , a admin charge , over £300 fees have been paid for 10 days boarding We do have "Pet Plan" Insurance Extract from T&Cs     “You agree that if you do not arrive on the start date of your booking, you will be liable for the full payment per day. You agree that should you return from holiday early and decide to collect your dog before the end of your booking, you will not be entitled to any refund of payment. In the unlikely event of illness or other circumstances resulting in a reduced stay with us, the total booking fee is still due and you will not be entitled to a refund or part refund. You agree that if you cancel giving less than 14 days notice the total fee is due. You agree that if you cancel your booking you will lose your full deposit. If you bring less dogs than are booked, you are still responsible for the balance due. “
    • The SD is dead, when  I applied to have it set aside a copy was sent to by the court to Credit Agricole the debt owner,  it was part of my appeal that Credil Limits were not authorised to make the application. Credit Limits then withdrew the application. As far as I am aware Credit Agricole did not respond. Creditl Limits came back to me ignoring the grounds of appeal see letter 15/4. They refer to statute barred, the loan was for double glazing it was not part of the mortgage so I still contend that the 5 year rule applies.   I did not contest the original French court order but before the hearing  I wrote to Credit Agricole offering to pay over a long period of time as the home in France was about to be repossessed by the mortgage bank (and it was). Credit Agricole did not reply to my letters. The original judgement had the following 'Since immediate enforcement is not a necessity, it shall not be ordered.'   See compliments slip below purported to be from Credit Agricole, undated and unsigned, this is probably in response to my appeal when I said that I had nothing from Credit Agricole suggesting that CLI were agents. I am not convinced that this is genuine, CLI have had plenty of opportunity to produce this since they were 'appointed'  in 2018!   Can CLI represent Credit Agricole here in the UK as they are debt collectors and as far as I can see are  not registered with the FSA?   Thanks again   comps.pdf letter.pdf

Dear those who have had decision letter or have Knowledge


The letter said my lost was £80,000 (this is what my pension would be worth)

however the amount they put as transferred was the amount my new current pension is worth £40,000(this is what they awarded me)

however at the time of transfer the amount was £19,000 NOT £40,000.


I am lead to believe that my current pension should not be used as a decision. Only the pension at the time of transfer.


Were they right to use my current pension figure as the amount transferred when it £19,000. less broker fees


My current pension is not income guaranteed it an shared investment policy


They also didn't take in to consideration life insurance attached or brokers or life time brokers fee attached to my pension


Do I need to make a separate claim for life insurances attached to my pension.

I was lead to believe this should of been included in the calculations


Any examples of FSCS Decision well be appreciated feel free to change figures and name


Dear all



The FSCS used my current pension figure as a lost sum however this was not the amount transferred and the model for this pension is not the same as the pension it was transferred from.



They did not include my life insurances attached to my pension or life time brokers fees.

Hello there.


I've merged your threads, it's best to stick with one.


Can you type up their calculations please, minus any identifiable information? It could help people to advise you.

so they owe you £35k


All the other valuations, benefits and deductions are taken into account so it matter not what things were

but they are supposed to use an equivalent value to place you into the same position as though you had never left the other scheme.


you claim what is at the bottom of the page, namely £35.5k


Once you retire the life insurance goes out the window so not a consideration

Thank for your reply.


I'm not retired

my pension was transferred out to another pension provider without good advice


my current pension it's in more of a share type pension scheme

meaning that my pension will not be guaranteed

it can go up or down;


where as with the occupational pension that pension rate is guaranteed at the end of my retirement


I'm to believe that my life insurance would still remain on my pension despite me not actually being within the Civil Service until retirement.

This should of been taken into consideration and they should not of used my current pension scheme as a basis to value my pension


only the amount that was transferred into it

which was £21,000


considuring it was at a loss due to the property crash


I'm confused how this figure can be used.

Hello there.


Have you asked the FSCS to explain how they did their calculations? You're in the area of actuarial science and I'd be surprised if CAG has anyone who's qualified in that.

Yes I have.

And having done my own research life insurance (it is also on their example on their website, and guidance)

life insurance must be also included in calculations if on the policy at the time of transfer.


Unless you had to be in the job at the time?

the life insurance bit disappears when you are no longer paying into the scheme BUT there is an extra payout to dependants if you die withn a short time of retiring. This would apply to those members who were not still actively contributing as well but since you moved your pot out them wouldnt apply.

Go back to the FSCS and tell them that SW have failed to apy the right amount into your pot as instructed. stop going on about the life insurance, it is a red herring and may end up costing you.
