Don’t let a scammer enjoy your retirement

Pension scams can be hard to spot, and we would like to remind members to continue to be vigilant. Scammers can be articulate and financially knowledgeable with credible-looking websites, testimonials and materials that are hard to distinguish from the real thing.

They make false claims to gain your trust, claiming they are authorised by the FCA or that they don’t need to be because they aren’t providing the advice themselves.

Cold calling about pensions is illegal. If someone contacts you out of the blue about your pension, it’s best simply to hang up. The Pensions Regulator’s advice to members is:

  • reject unexpected offers
  • check who you’re dealing with
  • don’t be rushed or pressured
  • get impartial information and advice.

You can find out more from the Financial Conduct Authority about pension scams and how to avoid them, as well as what to do if you think you’re being targeted by scammers.
