Pension Mis-selling:

Were you a victim?

Expert help and support from Greg Vaughan Financial Services: the pensions claims specialist


Have you paid into a private pension plan, such as an FSAVC or SIPP and been disappointed by the returns? Were you told to transfer an employer’s pension scheme to a personal pension and now feel it was a mistake?

The mis-selling of private pension policies has sadly been ongoing for many years, by a range of companies, and many people are entitled to compensation.  Are you one of them?

To help people caught up in one mis-selling scandal after another, Greg established Greg Vaughan Financial Services over 20 years ago and has built this dedicated Pension Claims website especially for victims of poor pensions advice. Greg is a fully qualified adviser and claims specialist, trusted by thousands of happy clients and has the highest customer satisfaction rating on Trustpilot – you can read those Trustpilot reviews here.

Contact Greg for help and advice about claiming for a mis-sold FSAVC Pension Policy; Pension Transfer; Pension Mortgage; SERPS opt-out;  or Ill Health Annuity.

Greg can still help even if you stopped paying premiums a long time ago, or the firm that sold your policy is no longer in business.

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

Your pension is often your most valuable financial asset, after your home. It is therefore vital to make sure you have not been given bad advice.

FSAVC pension were often mis-sold, leading to losses running into tens of thousands of pounds. Unknown to most people, additional pension contributions could have been paid into their employer’s own pension scheme, and, benefiting from employer subsidies, building up a substantially bigger fund as a result. If you were advised to top-up your pension by paying FSAVCs (free-standing additional voluntary contributions) you were likely given very bad advice.

Similarly, transferring out of an employer’s pension scheme to a personal pension plan often leads to lower benefits in retirement. There have been two major wide-ranging reviews of such advice over the past 30 years, which cost insurers and banks billions of pounds in compensation. But such advice is still being given and people are still losing out. 

There are similar question marks over the advice given to invest in SIPPs (Self Invested Personal Pensions) or the selling of annuities to people in ill-health, but much of it goes unnoticed by the poor victims.
