Conducting a regular review on your People’s Pension could help you reach your retirement goals, plus will ensure that you don’t lose track of that pension pot. It’s common for people with small pension pots like an old workplace scheme to lose track or forget about this fund. If you have stopped contributing to your People’s Pension, it could make sense to look at Pension Consolidation. Consolidating your funds into one, performing Pension could reduce the chances of you losing track on your funds and potentially enjoy better growth for your money.

The People’s Pensions, as with any investment or private pension, require regular checks and reviews to make sure you have the right Pension for your circumstances. A review could show you pensions that could have lower fees, better growth potential and more flexible access. Regular checks and reviews of your People’s Pension should alleviate any nasty surprises you find when retirement day finally arrives.
The earlier you get your People’s Pension reviewed, the better chance you have of making changes that are needed to hit your retirement goals.
People’s Pension is one of the most popular workplace pension schemes. Therefore, a pension policy with People’s Pension is set-up to benefit the whole workforce but might not be aligned with your attitude to financial risk. The risk profile of a pension can have a profound effect on the performance of the fund. While a conservative fund will be less risk-averse, it could restrict the growth potential of the fund and hence, not grow as much as you would like.
Over your working career, your attitude to financial risk usually changes, the younger you are, the more likely it is that you could take more financial risks to benefit from higher growth. This is because you have more potential to recoup any short-term dips over a more extended period than you do if you’re getting close to retirement.
A regular review with our pension advisers will help to find the perfect Pension for you.
There is no specific guidance on how often you should get your pensions reviewed. Our on-going service will continually monitor your pension to ensure it’s still right for you. You will receive an annual performance report that will quickly show how your pensions are looking and to discuss if any of your objectives have changed over the year.

Consolidating your pensions from different employers is run in the same format as a regular pension consolidation service. It’s generally not recommended to combine out of your current workplace pension, but in some cases, you can combine and transfer your other funds into your current workplace pension. Please speak with our team to find out all of your options.
Retirement Income Planning is the process of assessing how much income you will need in retirement and then making decisions and actions on how to achieve the targeted income. Your financial advisor will work with you to make a detailed retirement plan to help achieve your goals.
To combine your pensions, a financial advisor will need your authority to speak with your pension providers and then your authority to act on your behalf to transfer your pensions into the recommended product.
By initially giving the financial advisor the power to speak with your providers (Letter of Authority) the financial advisor will request the relevant information they need to make any recommendations on if consolidation is right for you, where to combine and potentially transfer your pensions.
For the full process of combining your pensions, please speak with our team.
Tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each client and may be subject to change in future.

We will quickly assess your current pensions and offer advice and recommendations on where to consolidate your funds. The advice we give is always in your best financial interests, and by speaking with us, we can take some of the decision processes from you and guide you to a more suitable pension, rather than a fit for all pension you may see online.
With all your funds in one place, you could furthermore reduce the chance of losing track or forgetting about that smaller pension pot that you accrued with an old employer. Pension consolidation isn’t for everyone, though, so please speak with one of our advisers before moving your pensions.
Capital at Risk
You could drawdown from a personal pension from your 55th birthday. In some circumstances i.e. ill health, your pension provider may allow you to take money from your pension, but this is at their discretion.
