Police Force Pension Scheme

In 2015, proposed changes to the Police Force Pension Scheme 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 also referred to as Defined Benefit schemes, these 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.

What can you do if you think you’ve been mis-sold?

If you think you may have been mis-sold then the first step would be to get the advice evaluated.
We offer a free assessment check of your circumstances and the advice you received. This will give a basic indication as to whether we think you may have been mis-sold and if you should consider a claim for compensation. There’s no obligation to use our service.

A thoroughly positive result and experience. In all honesty I didn't have much hope of any success following a truly dodgy pension investment. I spent years angry at myself then decided to let these guys have a go on my behalf. It took hardy any effort on my part and they kept me fully informed, then out of the blue I got a call saying they have won all my pension back plus more and within days it hit my account. Thrilled with their effort and professionalism. I dealt with a few different staff and all were informative, polite and helpful. I great end to a terrible situation. 100% genuine review and I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you.

Pension Claim Consulting were a Godsend. I was told about them by a friend who had also invested in a pension. They kept me informed on the progress of my claim with regular updates and answered my queries with patience and professionalism. There percentage for on behalf was also lower than expected. I can't thank them enough

I was approached by Pension Claim Consulting after the company that was handle ing my SIPP had been investigated by the Financial Ombudsmen and informed me i had a case, with this information given to me i agreed to let them represent me in trying to reclaim my investment. All through the process i was informed of every step and on a regular basis even though it took many months the outcome was successful and i was reimbursed fully. This is a fantastic company to work with and dedicated staff who know their business. Many Thanks. Mike Dixon.
