Retirement Benefits Counselling

Complaints

If you have a complaint relating to the management of the UCTRF, its administration, member communication, benefit payments, or any other matter, please write to the Principal Officer of the UCTRF.

The UCTRF has 30 days in which to respond. If you do not receive a response, or the response is not satisfactory, you will be able to lodge your complaint with the Pension Funds Adjudicator.

Please note that this does not apply to complaints regarding the separate death and disability cover or the income continuation cover, which must be lodged with the Ombudsman for Long-term Insurance.  The insurer should be given the opportunity to resolve the problem or complaint before it is referred to the Ombudsman.

You can complain to Pension Funds Adjudicator and to the Ombudsman for Long-term Insurance directly (you do not need to hire a lawyer) and for free.

Should the Pension Funds Adjudicator’s ruling not be to your satisfaction, you may apply to the division of the High Court within six weeks.
