Teachers' Pension Scheme

Teacher pension schemes are thought to be one of the best occupational pensions in the UK.

This is because they are considered to be relatively safe and usually comes with valuable benefits, such as a guaranteed income throughout retirement. This is something that would cost a lot to replicate in a private pension.

These types of public sector pensions also known as Final Salary or Defined Benefit Pensions also keep pace with inflation and more often than not, don’t have any running costs either.

SIPPs (Self Invested Personal Pensions) on the other hand don’t usually have these benefits and usually do have administration costs. They also put you in charge of the risks and running of the investments involved with the performance your pension.

Pension Transfer

While there are some rare circumstances where a Teachers’ Pension transfer might be deemed suitable, many transfers will have been unsuitable, and down to the negligence of a Financial Adviser who may have left pension holders worse off.
If you followed advice to transfer your Teachers’ Pension and are worried about it, we may be able to help.

Teachers’ Pension Scheme and AVC’s

Before a change in policy in 1995, some TPS members may have used AVC’s – Additional Voluntary Contributions – to top up their pension pots, without being fully aware of the other options open to them, such as buying additional years. This advice may have left them in a worse off position come retirement.

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.

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.
