Transfer your other pensions

If you’ve worked for more than one employer, it’s likely you’ll have several pensions. Transferring them into your account with The People’s Pension – at no charge from us, could make keeping tabs on them a whole lot easier.

Can we help you save money?

By combining all your existing pensions, the charges you pay may be lower (obviously, we can’t guarantee that it will result in a higher value pot or a greater income in retirement).

The People’s Pension charge you just:

50p a year (0.5%) for every £100 of the value of your account.

The less you pay in charges, the more of your money is invested.

Even small differences in charges can have a significant impact on the value of your pension pot at retirement.

Important things to consider

This is not a recommendation from B&CE to transfer your pension savings. The Trustee of The People’s Pension and B & C E Financial Services Limited (who administer the scheme) are not able to offer advice on whether or not you should transfer.

Transferring may not be suitable or available for everyone. Whether it’s right for you will depend on many factors such as personal circumstances, the nature of your other pension arrangements, whether you are planning to access your pension savings in the next five years, whether you could be giving up a guaranteed benefit – such as guaranteed annuity rates, the cost of transferring or whether the provider you are transferring from applies a charge, be that a fund or a contract charge.

If you are transferring your funds out of an occupational or company pension scheme this may be more complex than transferring a personal pension, especially if it is a ‘defined benefit’ scheme. We recommend you read the Money Advice Service’s information on transferring out of a defined benefit pension scheme before obtaining financial advice and making a decision.

It’s important that you compare the charges, features and services between the pension you want to transfer and The People’s Pension to see if it’s the best option for you. If you are unsure about transferring, we recommend you speak to a financial adviser. To find your nearest adviser, you can visit www.unbiased.co.uk.
