With Pension Transfer Values At An All

Time High Is It Time To Re-Visit The

Traditional Advice And Consider Transfer

Out Of A Final Salary Pension Scheme?


● The Pension Freedoms (effective April 2015).

● Long Term Low Interest Rates And Q.E.

● The Short Term Impact Of Brexit.

● Increasing Final Salary Pension Deficits.


A transfer offers you

flexibility over how much

you withdraw from your

pension fund and when. A

final salary pension does

not offer this flexibility

The new tax rules mean it is

now possible to transfer the

value the value of a pension

scheme in order to

bequeath it to your children

after you die.*

Transfer values relative to

future pension entitlements

are higher now than ever


Your final salary scheme will

normally continue to pay

your spouse after you die

but the amount is controlled

by the scheme terms . A

transfer puts you in control

A Transfer gives you the

flexibility to deal with

specific family

circumstances such as is ill


Should you have concerns

about the long term viability

of your final salary scheme

a transfer puts you in


* The 55% tax has been scrapped which means your beneficiaries will pay no tax if you die before aged 75 and

only pay tax at their marginal rate of income tax when withdrawing benefits if you are over 75 when you die.


Any investment is a risk it is

important to carefully

consider if you are better off

where you are

Once you have made your

Final Salary Pension Transfer

there is no going back

The transfer value offered by

your employer may be low

and may not exceed (or at

least match) the return you

would have expected if you

had stayed with the scheme.

If you do transfer, your

investment will require

ongoing management. You

will need to actively

manage your fund or pay

someone to do so.


After detailed consideration Mr X decided to transfer out of a Final Salary Pension Scheme

offering him a pension of approximately £33,000 per annum.

The lump sum secured via the transfer if invested appropriately, using conservative estimates

of investment growth, would allow Mr X to withdraw £33,000 per annum with minimal

withdrawals from the initial capital sum.

It was calculated that if Mr X, and his spouse died before their 90th birthday, then a capital

sum in excess of £250,000 would remain to be passed on to beneficiaries. If they had

stayed with the Final Salary Scheme the benefits would die with them.


Pension transfer values are increasing dramatically on some final salary schemes

When we first met Mrs Y (Aged 54) In April 2016 we analysed her situation and advised it

would be best to stay with her Final Salary Scheme and re-visit her options on reaching age


It recently came to our attention that transfer values from the scheme had increased

significantly. We requested a recalculation of Mrs Y transfer value and found it had increased

by 84%. This, given her particular circumstances, changed our advice to Mrs Y.


Any decision to transfer (or not) must be based on a number of factors and there are risks but with

transfer values at an all time high it is worth at least performing the appropriate calculations.

activities. We only charge should an individual decide to proceed with a transfer.
