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.

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.
