Full Judgment Text: EN,
Summary: The complainant, who has been receiving a retirement pension since 1 December 2017, impugns her “pay slip” for January 2018.
As the Tribunal recalled in Judgment 3538 (under 15), the power clearly vested in the competent authority to alter the pension scheme can be exercised lawfully if it represents a bona fide attempt to secure the pension scheme into the future and is based on what appears to be properly reasoned actuarial advice.

As a rule, the Tribunal will not substitute its own assessment for that of an expert such as an actuary (see Judgments 3360, under 4 and 5, 3538, under 11 to 15, and 4134, under 26). However, since the complainant alleges blatant errors, the Tribunal will examine her objections.
