Whitebridge Financial Planning

Whitebridge Financial Planning Ltd was a financial advice firm based in Newcastle.

It is one of the companies associated with claims regarding the British Steel Pension Scheme (BSPS).

Whitebridge Financial Planning Ltd is no longer trading and was declared in default by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

Can I still claim compensation if my Adviser is in default?

If your Adviser is declared in default it means the FSCS have established that there are protected claims against them. And that your Adviser or firm are unable or unlikely to be able to pay the compensation.

When this happens, the FSCS steps in and can pay compensation to eligible claimants.

This means you can still make a claim for compensation against Whitebridge Financial Planning Ltd but the FCSC will process the claim.

The maximum compensation award the FSCS can pay an individual in relation to a claim against Whitebridge Financial Planning Ltd is £85,000.

What happened with the British Steel Pension Scheme?

In 2017, many British Steel workers were advised to transfer from their defined benefit pension into a defined contribution pension.

Also known as Personal Pension Plans or a Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs).

The advice they received may not have been the best advice for them.

By transferring to a private pension arrangement, they would have lost the benefits already built up in the British Steel Pension Scheme.

Also, to achieve the same level of benefits from their new plan may not be realistic.

Many members who received unsuitable pension transfer advice are now claiming compensation.

The BAD news:

Pension mis-selling has cost pension savers BILLIONS of pounds

The GOOD news:

Compensation payments are hitting record figures every year
