OFT calls for pension reforms

An Office of Fair Trading (OFT) study of the defined contribution (DC) workplace pensions market has found some schemes are not offering value for money.

A particular area for concern is older higher charging contracts, may not be delivering value for money.

There has never been a better time to review your existing pension and find out if it is delivering good value for money. If your pension is not delivering value for money, you normally have the option to switch your pension to a more suitable pension contract. Pensions are complicated and require expert independent advice. Independent advice should always be taken before you consider switching or amending any pension contracts.
