Were you persuaded to transfer your NHS pension?
NHS PENSIONS & TRANSFERS
While some doctors and nurses may argue that NHS pensions aren’t what they used to be, they are still better than many other occupational pension schemes, and certainly feature a lot more benefits that most private pensions.
Why are they so valuable? Firstly, as they are often a final salary or average salary scheme, or other form of defined benefit pension, which guarantees an income in retirement, unlike private pensions which are at the mercy of the markets.
They also promise to payout right the way through retirement until death, unlike most private pensions which may run out overtime, leaving you short on cash later on.
WHY DO PEOPLE TRANSFER NHS PENSIONS?
Usually, its because a financial adviser has told them its a good idea, tempting them with access to tax-free cash from their pension, or with the promise of more money in retirement.
Back in 2017, the financial watchdogs at the FCA said that less than 50% of the transfers they examined were considered “suitable” for the pension holder, meaning that 1in2 people who transferred their pension may have been mis-sold, and may be worse off in retirement for having transferred their pensions.

DID YOU TRANSFER YOUR BAE SYSTEMS PENSION?
If so, you could have given up irreplaceable benefits, and even if your pension pot seems to get growing nicely, you could still be losing out by thousands of pounds when it comes to retirement due to the comparative uncertainty of alternative pension schemes, and the life-long payments your NHS pension would have paid out.
