UK - Former Sea-Land Pension Scheme member Mark Tonge is working on his first case as an adviser for the pension advisory service, OPAS.
Tonge became an OPAS adviser earlier this year after playing a major role in a successful battle over pension benefits with Sea-Land’s parent, shipping giant Maersk.
Tonge, who is receiving training from OPAS and his new employer where he is a scheme trustee, said: “I’m presently working my way through my first case, and I’m building up from there. The case relates to an ill-health retirement complaint.”
