1 The Office of the Pensions Ombudsman and Pension Protection Fund Ombudsman are tribunal NDPBs. The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions appoints the ombudsman and although a deputy is also appointed, these are individual positions, as the bodies do not have management boards. Details of the ombudsman’s remuneration have been included for completeness.

*This is the part-time element of the remuneration, which can include pensions and national insurance where appropriate.
