Transferring your pension outside of the UK can incur a lot of hiddeen charges, be careful if you are advised to take the latest craze thats advertised everywhere, QROPS might cost you a lot more than you think. They have taken over from Self Invested Personal Pensions for offshore salesmen. Expat Informer had an interesting article on ttransferring pensions.

Hi Vanessa

I retired at 54 and had an option to take part of my occupational pension as a lump sum. Much depends on the company your dealing with and the T&Cs of their pension scheme.

Hi Vanessa, there is a company that advertises here with AI that do a lot with frozen pensions and also have written an info page on this site.


My husband used them a while ago (and is very pleased) and we have friends that have also used them. Tell them Caroline and Bill sent you!
