What size is my transfer likely to be?
At the moment transfer values can be hundreds of thousands pounds and on some occasions millions of pounds. For example a 50 year old employee of a bank who has a Final Salary pension with a projected pension at age 65 of £4,500 – the transfer value could be in excess of £190,000. Equally another 50 year old bank employee with a projected pension at age 65 of £25,000 could be looking at a transfer value of around £1,000,000 today.
Your transfer value is unique to you and varies from scheme to scheme. Our independent financial advisers can assist you in getting a true transfer value.
