Police Force Pension Scheme

Nearly all public sector pensions have been hit by pension transfer mis-selling, including the Police Force Pension Scheme.

The proposed changes to the Police Force Pension Scheme in 2015, reportedly became a selling tactic of some adviser firms. Often working with marketing companies, who tried to persuade members to transfer into private pension schemes, such as a SIPP.

This so called “deadline effect” meant some members believed they only had a certain window to make this move. A move that would supposedly make their pensions better off.

Unfortunately, the opposite is true, as it’s rarely a good move to come out of the “gold plated” pension schemes, such as the police pension scheme.

Valuable pension schemes

Sometimes referred to as Defined Benefit schemes; Police Force pensions come with valuable benefits that private personal pension schemes don’t offer.
These benefits may include a guaranteed income for life during retirement as well as benefits for your family in the event of death.

Also, many grow in line with inflation and don’t have extra running costs like many SIPPs do.  Another big bonus of these schemes is they are considered relatively safe and if things should wrong – the Pension Protection Fund may cover some of the value.
With private pensions you are in charge of the money and if things go wrong you could be seriously out of pocket in retirement.

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 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
