Have you ever transferred funds out of the Universities Superannuation Scheme Pension?

For anyone that was part of the Universities Superannuation Scheme prior to 1992, they would have received a highly valuable retirement fund system. More recently though this scheme has been replaced for workers.

It is the second biggest private pension scheme in the UK with more than £50 bn under management and providing individuals with a range of fantastic benefits. This includes tax relief on contributions, being able to take cash out at the point of retirement, and receiving payments that are equal to 3x their annual salary should they die prior to taking retirement. To transfer away from this, an individual would need to be offered something pretty special.

By having a retirement fund that is secured, people have greater peace of mind that their retirement is going to be comfortable. It is very rare that an individual should be advised to transfer away from this type of pension, and that should only ever come from a financial advisor. However, there remain some people who are given this advice and as a result they end up being much worse off.

Unscrupulous financial advisors have made huge profits from providing their clients with unsound advice and then earning commission on the resulting pensions transfers.
