Armed Forces Pensions are government pensions awarded to those who served or who are serving in a branch of the British Armed Forces – usually the Army, Navy or Airforce.
Because of the dedication, level of service, physical and lifestyle costs and sacrifices of MOD personnel, these pensions are often a little better than most of the ones you might find in “civvy” life, and some may even be super-valuable Final Salary Pensions.
These pensions are guaranteed to payout for the rest of your retirement once you reach the right age, keep pace with inflation, and don’t cost you to run them.
Yet some people move these valuable pensions into personal arrangements through a pension transfer.
So why do some people get persuaded to transfer them away? If you did, you may be able to make a claim!
Advisors from Get Claims Advice will be on hand to advise attendees on the day about their military pensions.
