How do Defined Benefit Pensions Work?
Defined benefit pensions pay out a secure income for life which increases every year. You might have a defined benefit pension if you have worked for a large employer or in the public sector.
Your employer contributes to the scheme and is responsible for ensuring there’s enough money at the time you retire to pay your pension income. No matter how complex your current arrangements, get in touch today for defined benefit pension transfer advice and make sure you’re not losing money through bad investments and fees.
