Defined Benefit Pension Transfer

Would a Pension Transfer benefit you?
As defined benefit pension transfer specialists, we offer a full and
objective professional appraisal so you can make an informed choice.
In the past it was almost always wrong to transfer a defined benefit pension (also known as a frozen company pension and final salary pension transfer) into a personal pension. However, since the introduction of ‘pension freedoms’ two years ago, there are more flexible options available for taking tax free cash and income, as well as substantially improved death benefits.

Defined benefit pension transfers have become more attractive due to the historically high values as a result of low interest rates/gilt yields. On top of this the weak funding position that many occupational schemes are declaring have concerned deferred members, especially those with larger benefits who would lose most if their scheme was forced to enter the Pension Protection Fund.

Scott Fyffe helped me make a life changing decision last year when I was considering transferring my Occupational Pension. Scott went through the options in great detail and his knowledge and understanding of pensions/financial systems is second to none. I was so impressed with the service I received I recommended Scott to some of my work colleagues.
