British Steel Pensions Scheme

PWH Financial Planning Ltd is one of several advice firm associated with claims regarding the British Steel Pension Scheme (BSPS).

In 2017, BSPS members had to make decisions about their pensions as part of a restructure of the scheme.

Many members were advised to transfer into a private pension arrangement or Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP).

Around 8,000 members transferred with a collective value worth nearly £2.8bn.


Unsuitable advice to transfer

Unfortunately, this advice was not the best advice for most scheme members.

By transferring from a Defined Benefit (DB) pension, like BSPS, into a private pension arrangement many would have lost the benefits they had built up in the British Steel Pension Scheme.

To achieve the same level of benefits from their new plan may not have been realistic.

Many members are now seeking compensation for mis-selling due to this unsuitable pension transfer advice.

FSCS Claims against PWH Financial Planning Ltd

The FSCS confirmed that they had received six claims against the firm which related to pension transfers.

If you received pension advice from them now is the time to check if you have a case to claim compensation for mis-selling.

After identifying a concern regarding my pension, I sought advice from Pension Claim Consulting. The response and customer service was swift and amazing. The courtesy and care taken throughout the whole process was phenomenal. The consultant’s communication from start to finish filled me with confidence that PCC do exactly what they state and were on hand whenever required. The level of understanding, empathy for the frustrations, and patience is by far the best I’ve witnessed. I cannot thank PCC enough for their outstanding work ethic and dedication to customers/clients. If you have any concerns at all regarding your pension, then I would highly recommend that you get in touch with them.

Pension Claim Consulting Ltd successfully won a case on my behalf following misguided advice I received in relation to my pension. They were most proactive in the process and kept me fully informed every step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Very professional, very thorough and very good at what they do. Always at the end of the phone or email for any questions at anytime throughout the process. I can’t recommend them enough.
Roger King
Pension Claim Consulting managed to reclaim some of my pension by constantly chasing the company that fraudulently took my money. I though that I had lost everything. I cannot thank them enough on recovering some of my pension back.
Susan Stringer
Excellent standard of service. The claim was protracted substantially by virtue of opponents trying hard to not accept any responsibility for their actions and not return the pension fund. PCC kept me fully informed throughout the process, obtained an excellent result for me.They also kept chasing the opponent when little action was taking place from them. The staff were always pleasant and helpful to deal with and very encouraging when I felt my claim was doomed to failure. I can not praise highly enough
Paul Wilshaw
