Pension Transfer Advice

Transferring from a Final Salary Pension scheme is not the right move for everyone, in fact the regulatory starting point is that a transfer is unsuitable until proven otherwise. So why do people consider it?

A final salary pension transfer puts you in control. It allows you to take the level of income you require to meet your needs and delivers the option to pass on the full remaining value of your fund to beneficiaries on your death.

The choice between staying with a final salary pension scheme or making a pension transfer is not straightforward. Both the benefits and risks must be considered in detail before making a decision.

Given the complexity and the risks involved it is essential to seek out appropriate pension transfer advice to aid your decision making process. Safeguards are already in place with a legal requirement to get properly qualified Financial Advice on a final salary pension transfer when the transfer value is £30,000 or more.
