Make sure your pension will provide you with the retirement you deserve

If you were advised to top-up your pension by paying FSAVCs (free-standing additional voluntary contributions) you were likely given very bad advice. You could have paid those additional contributions straight into your public sector pension scheme and built up a substantially bigger retirement fund.

Similarly, if you were advised not to join or to transfer benefits out of a public sector pension scheme, you were again badly advised. There have been two wide-ranging reviews of such advice over the past twenty years, which cost financial services companies billions of pounds in compensation.

But not everyone was included, or their case was unfairly rejected, which will likely cost them thousands of pounds a year in lost pension income.

Not many people realise that their pension fund is their largest financial asset. For many people, its value can be much greater even than their home. If you are a member of a public sector pension scheme (such as a teacher or a doctor, government employee, police, or dentist) you will be a member of the best type of scheme. Your benefits will be guaranteed and linked to your length of service and salary, rather than being at the mercy of the performance of the risky stock market, and you had the opportunity to contribute additionally (AVC) with benefits such as matching contributions. Other schemes, such as FSAVCs (Free Standing Voluntary Contributions) were not protected, had high costs, and resulted in massive underperformance and losses in the pension fund.

FSAVC pensions are where some of the most substantial losses were, and the regulator deemed them unsuitable in most cases. Greg is a specialist in pursuing these complex cases and ensuring a fair outcome for his customers. One client received over £90,000 for her mis-sold FSAVC Pension.
