Watch out for scams if you are thinking about transferring out

Unfortunately, during these unprecedented, challenging and uncertain times, scammers are looking to benefit and take advantage of the situation. We want to make sure that you have taken the right precautions before thinking about transferring your pension elsewhere, so your retirement savings are protected. We strongly recommend that you visit the Financial Conduct Authority website and read the specific guidance relating to Covid-19.

Remember, scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and inventive. We strongly recommend that you:

  • reject offers that come out of the blue
  • are wary of adverts on social media and sponsored adverts online
  • use the warning list to check who you are dealing with
  • do not click links or open emails from senders you don't already know
  • avoid being rushed or pressured into making a decision
  • do not give out any of your personal details (bank details, address, existing insurance/pensions/investment details).

You can find further information about pension scams at the MoneyHelper website.

If you have any questions about your pension, please contact us.
