Teachers' Pension Scheme

The Teachers’ Pension Scheme is considered valuable, so if you were wrongly advised to transfer you could be entitled to claim compensation.

The Teachers’ pension scheme is 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 – Teachers’ Pension Scheme

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.

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.

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
