D-Day veteran loses case against police pension scheme

But the problem is that following the changes there are now three different approaches to survivors’ pensions in the UK and calls are growing to align these to one.

In May 2019, it was announced that aligning the rules for police pensions with all survivors across the UK would cost an additional £144m, while retaining pension benefits for all, including reinstatement of pensions already surrendered, would increase the police scheme's liabilities by £198m.
