Are you considering transferring your pension?

If you are one of the many people with a Defined Benefit (Final Salary) pension scheme who has recently seen a large increase in their transfer value, you may be aware of the option to transfer it into a Personal Pension in order to take advantage of the ‘Pensions Freedom’ rules which were introduced in April 2015. This is, however, a riskier strategy and there are many things you will need to consider before deciding to transfer: What guarantees will I be giving up? Can I afford to give them up? How will my family be affected?
