Royal Mail Pension Scheme

Workers who were advised to transfer out of their Royal Mail Pension Scheme could claim compensation if that advice wasn’t right

Royal Mail Pension Plans (RMPP) are considered highly valuable as they not only come with a guaranteed income for life, but many have additional benefits that are expensive to replicate with a private pension scheme.

Unfortunately, they also attract unregulated marketing companies, purposely targeting people and persuading them they would be better off transferring their pension into personal schemes.

Some potential indicators are:

• Unexpected call offering a pension review

• Promises to access your pension before the age of 55

• Feeling pressurised to sign by a rep or a courier

• Time bound, one-offs and cash incentive offers

Was it bad advice or not?

While there are some rare circumstances in which a Royal Mail Pension transfer might be deemed suitable, many transfers will not have been.
However, some people did receive advice from a regulated financial adviser and whether it was just negligence or greed, that advice could have left many people worse off in retirement.

It’s not just the transfer that may be a bad idea. Some of the investments contained in personal pensions, such as SIPPs may also be unsuitable for the investor.

What can I do now?

If you received advice to transfer from your Royal Mail Pension Plan and are worried about it, you might want to get it checked out.

We offer a free no obligation assessment in which we will look at the circumstances of your transfer and tell you if we think you’ve been mis-sold and if you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

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.

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
