Got a British Pension

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I am an expat now living in the USA and have a contact here in Atlanta who can help you re-invest your frozen pension in the UK. I re-invested mine, I had been paying to my pension in the UK since I was 17 years old and when i left in 2005 it was frozen and just going up at the rate of inflation, now I have done something about it so it will make more money and it is working!!!! This person is totally trust worthy and knows his stuff, he took care of all the paperwork and keeps me fully informed all the time. Believe me he is worth talking to now i don't have to worry about my retirement as it is all taken care of and i will have plenty of money to retire to a good life.

If you have a pension you want to do something about, don't wait around, send me a message and I will give you the details of the bloke I am dealing with. By the way he is British too and working here in the US for a British company.

How do you report a post?

I was going to say Spam, then I saw you have more than one post, so I thought maybe misguided. Would not be the first one, hence the FSA.

And then I looked further and you made the same post last November.

This 'bloke' would not be you, would it?

no, i am female LOL, been on here a long while and thought it would be a very good idea for people to know that you can sort your pension here in the USA with a minimum of fuss. Honestly i am so glad I did this as i feel more at ease about my pension making some money for me.

If that was the story line you were told, in the UK it would be called misselling and have serious consequences.

I would suggest you obtain a second and even third opinion.

Can I not just keep paying into my HSBC pension here in the UK and then receive payment when I retire? I realise the employer contributions would be nil (unless US companies will pay into UK schemes), but I didn't think I'd need to move it entirely to the US.

Excuse me i dont know what your problem is!!! I have been on this board a very long time and never been spoken to like this Boiler.

I am not miss selling as I am NOT selling silly!!!!

My pension in the UK was frozen and only going up at the rate of inflation ie 1.2 % so I had some guy arrange and did all the paper work to re invest it so now it went up last year by 10%.

I have got lots opinions from ppl who have done this do you think i would risk my very large pension which i have been paying into since I was 17 for 22 years !!!!!

I also have my protected funds in a private bank account which in the UK it is the law that half of your pension put into a company pension has to be protected the other half is invested in a choice of what risk investment you want to do.

For others I have not transferred this to the USA as you cannot do that, it will go up steadily and my protected funds are protected, I am under the UK laws for pensions not doing any thing wrong just looking after my investment there in the UK

I thought we were on this board to pass on info to help each other and that is exactly what i was trying to do.

I feel quite upset by your reaction Boiler, I feel that maybe I should not share my help with others and believe me this is difficult moving from the UK to the USA and every bit of info i know and have experienced I personally am a helping person.

Thank you Crazy Brit

If your advisor sic wants to advertise he should contact owners of this web site. I am sure they would be more than happy to assist.

If you think you are set for life with 22 years pension contributions, you need a new calculator.

Good idea to start now, you only get what you pay for, you need to have a paid consultation with an IFA who is familiar with the needs of expats.

Everybodys individual circumstances vary, no single cookie cutter answer.

For money forums, you can have a look at:

Yes that is exactly I have, I did not get this for free I did have to pay a fee but it was nothing compared to what I will make! This company I am dealing with are in the UK with representatives here in the US which I feel more comfortable dealing with someone who is local to where i live and understand UK pensions and know all the rules.
