5 good reasons to considers your transfer options…
- Unlike a Final Salary Pension a private pension has the capability to become a significant financial asset. Transferring out of a Final Salary Pension gives you greater control over your pension. It can also be passed down to the next generation, spouse or dependents in the event of your death. This is something that is not available with a Final Salary Pension.
- Current average transfer values has never been more attractive which removes a significant percentage of the risk associated with Final Salary Pension transfers.
- You’ll have full control over your fund in terms of how and when you access it and what funds you choose to invested in.
- You can start receiving your pension from the age of 55. Of course, if you intend to work longer you can defer taking your pension and access it at a later date, allowing it to grow further.
- Transferring to a privately managed pension can also have tax advantages too. In many cases, our advisers have been able to structure client’ finances in a way that lessens future tax obligations.
How we work with you…
Detailed, professional advice
Following a free consultation in Edinburgh your adviser will compile a detailed report that will cover off all factors relating to a potential transfer. We’ll then arrange a follow-up meeting so that our report can be discussed in-depth and in-person answering any queries you may have.
Completing the transfer
Assuming you wish to proceed with the transfer, your adviser will arrange with you a suitable pension to accept the funds, unless you have one already.
Our service doesn’t end with the transfer
We understand that you may require our service beyond the initial transfer. At your discretion our Edinburgh team can arrange for regular, ongoing advice ensuring your pension performs to its maximum potential for many years to come.
How much can you expect from a pension transfer?
The value of a transfer is unique to you and depends on your age as well as the specific benefits that are offered by individual pension schemes. To give you an idea of what your transfer value may be, here are a couple of illustrations:
- An individual aged 55 who is entitled to a pension of £30,000 per year from the age of 65 could potentially receive a transfer value of around £600,000.
- An individual aged 55 who is entitled to a pension of £30,000 per year from the age of 60 could potentially receive a transfer valued around £750,000.
Understanding the risks
Anyone considering transferring out of a Final Salary Scheme should appreciate that once a transfer has taken place the decision is irrevocable and that the valuable benefits from the scheme are lost. Your adviser will take your through a rigorous process which will clearly highlight the risks and benefits of transferring — and advise if transferring is right for you.
