In 2002 I had 969 pound in a pension pot. I was advised to not transfer it into my new works pension as it would do better left with Rothschild. I have just rang to find out whats in the fund and was told zero due to charges cancelling out the fund. Im mad as they have not sent an annual statement in the last 14 years. Ive just spoken with the press who seem interested.

As long as you have been updating them with any change of address if you have moved, you should have received a statement every year.

Although great that the Daily Mail is taking on your story, they do get results but if not approach the Regulator who can give a binding decision if found in your favour.

 

Please keep us updated on progress.

The funds in debit by £37.00 but they've told me they are wiping it as chasing me for the debt would cost them more.

This is ridiculous.

Apart from you not receiving an annual statement have you received any correspondence from 2002 until present?

 

If not you are going to have to send a Subject Access Request to find out what has been going on & why you have received nothing for the last 14 years.

Yes, fully exhaust the complaints procedure & then you can take it to the regulator.

 

Keep everything in writing.

Positive outcome. They are putting £2500k in my pension and are paying me compensation for distress. The Daily Mail are going to feature it.

bit like the section 32 buy out scandal - RBS had to put into a new fund a figure for a further pension for me due to misleading me to opt out of Company Pension fund

Just spoke with the journalist that's doing the story. They believe there could be many thousands that could be effected and have asked the pension company if they are to investigate this. The expose is set for wednesday.

as I said I got mine in 2008 and never seen one prior from even ex company pension or private pensions. even on retiring (part retired then) it was the Pension service

 

Companies were:- Aviva - Royal London - Prudential - Hanover on behalf of large insurance companies

 

some were from the Section 32 scandal where we all lost out, and some from take overs.

I spoke on BBC radio Sheffield the following day advising people to be aware. Don't be fooled by the term pension "advisor" they are a "sales person" who earn a risidual commission from charges.

Company pension started March 2003 and term states "under normal circumstances you can take the pension between 50 and 75.

 

I've done a little research and it may be that the pension is protected from the increased age of 50 to 55 as it was entered into before December 2003.

 

Anyone clued up on the rules on this?

 

Thanks

Hello there.

 

I've moved your thread from the media section to the main pensions forum and left you a link to follow.

 

Most pensions can only be taken from age 55 now because the government changed the rules on early retirement. What do you mean by it being protected please?
