We are experts in helping customers claim compensation for their mis-sold pensions. Many people have been poorly advised on their pensions and this has resulted in a significant loss of money.

There are currently 4 main types of mis-sold pension, these are Final Salary Transfer Pension’s; Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP); Small Self Administered Scheme Pension (SSAS); and Occupational Pension Scheme (OPS).

Introduced in 1989, SIPP Pension’s (self-invested personal pension) in many ways is like a personal pension in that they offer a tax-efficient vehicle for retirement savings, however, how these pensions perform is based entirely on how well the investments inside them perform.

Also known as a Defined Benefit Pension

Some pensions will rely on an annuity to provide a regular income during retirement. With so much riding on your choice of annuity, it’s important that the advice given takes all your circumstances into account. But what happens if you get inappropriate advice and are left with an unsuitable annuity? Many people spend an entire career working at building up a pension pot to fund a comfortable retirement so realising your annuity may not provide for you going into retirement is a huge worry and concern.

SERP’s was introduced 4 decades ago in 1978 as a top-up to the basic state pension. You would have only been eligible for the scheme if you were an employee making Class 1 National Insurance Contributions, self-employed people were not eligible for this type of pension. Originally when introduced the max benefit under the scheme was 25%, however, from 1988 this was reduced to a maximum of 20%. A lot of people were advised to opt-out of the SERPS and instead had their NI rebates paid into a personal pension believing it would provide a better benefit

Also known as a ‘small self-administered pension scheme’. These schemes are usually run by small businesses or family-run businesses and are typically created to provide important retirement benefits for key staff, such as the employee choosing how to invest their pension funds. This type of scheme is usually set up by non-regulated entities and is often made with the intention to avoid stringent safeguarding regulations. A responsible financial advisor should have warned you that these pensions carry a high risk due to poor investments, if they did not do so or received an unwarranted amount of commission for the advice they gave, then this is grounds for a compensation claim.

It firstly depends on if the business we are claiming against is still trading. If your advisers are still trading then they have to give us a final decision within 8 weeks. Many choose to defend claims, which then means your case may be passed on to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) for an independent review, which can take up to 6 months to resolve. Many of the cases we deal with involve advisers or businesses that have stopped trading. In these circumstances, we would take your case to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), their turnaround for these claims is between 3 to 6 months.
