Why all the fuss over company pension schemes?
Company pension Schemes carry certain promises made by the sponsoring employer and whilst the press is never short of doom and gloom about multi billion pound deficits, closing schemes and robbed pensioners there are still an awful lot of benefits to be found in a company pension scheme that would be very expensive if you were to purchase them elsewhere and as such these benefits should not be given up likely.
Any decision not to join, leave, or transfer away from a company pension scheme should not be taken lightly and we would always recommend that you seek independent advice before making a decision. Well we would say that wouldn’t we? But why take a chance, you could be missing out on tens of thousands of pounds in retirement.
