FAQs

Below you’ll find answers to questions we get asked most about the Pension Transfer process. If your question is still unanswered please get in touch.

  • What is the best pension provider for me?

    Our partner is totally impartial, and will search the whole of the market to ensure the best pension provider for your individual circumstances.

  • Can I take out the whole of my pension as cash?

    Yes, you can take your pension as a lump sum. Although, please be aware that there are tax implications. If you withdraw the whole of your pension as cash, the first 25% of the pension is tax free, but the remaining 75% is potentially taxable.

  • How much tax will I pay if I take all of my pension as a lump sum?

    The first 25% of your pension fund can be taken as a tax-free lump sum. The remainder will be taxed as income, with the rate of tax determined by how much income you earn from all sources.

  • How do I claim the first 25% of my pension tax free?

    Please contact your current provider to see what facility they offer. Or contact us for a no obligation review.

  • I am in receipt of my pension / annuity, can I cash it in now?

    No, at the present time you cannot fully cash in your pension annuity. The Government have announced you will potentially be able to sell your annuity for cash from April 2017.

  • Do I have to enrol in the new company pension scheme?

    If you’re an eligible jobholder, who doesn’t want to join your employer’s workplace pension scheme, you can opt out of the scheme after you have been automatically enrolled.

  • If I take my pension now will my benefits be affected?

    It is recommended that you find advice from an organisation such as CAB or Age UK, or Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

  • I have my own business and want to set a pension up for 6 employees, how do I do this?

    We recommend that you refer to the Pension Regulator.

  • What are the new State Pension changes?

    The new State Pension will be a regular payment from the government that you can claim if you reach state pension age on or after 6 April 2016. You’ll be able to get the new State Pension if you’re eligible and:

    • – a man born on or after 6 April 1951
