What is a pension transfer?

A pension transfer enables you to combine your existing pension products, such as any defined contribution pension pots that you received while you were employed.


If your pension pot is more than £30K then you'll have to, by law, see a financial adviser for advice when transferring a DB pension.

When you transfer, your pension funds will be given a ‘transfer value’ – this is how much they’ll be worth if you move them to a different product. This value is useful, as it determines whether or not it’s financially advantageous for you to transfer.

Most pension transfers are carried out with the assistance of a financial advisor. Opal Wealth Management can assist with this process. At the start of your consultation, we’ll examine your current finances, then outline the benefits of transferring your pension (if applicable).

We’ll also assess how you feel about risk. This is to make sure that our recommendations match your personal financial comfort-zone. We encourage you to ask any questions that you might have, as this helps ensure that you’re happy with your investment decisions.

Do I need professional financial advice to transfer?

It’s highly recommended that you receive professional advice before transferring. A financial advisor will examine your current pension product, and assess whether or not a transfer will be suitable.

Are there any fees involved with a pension transfer?

There’s likely to be some fees involved with transferring your pension. For example, if your transfer value is lower than the value of your pension pot, you might incur an early exit fee. We’ll outline all the fees involved with the process, to ensure that you understand exactly what you’ll be paying out.

Is transferring my pension the right thing to do?

This depends on the nature of your current pension, and what financial plans you have for the future. There may well be some advantages to transferring your pension, but equally, you might lose some benefits in the process.
