Pension Transfers and Repensioning
In order to obtain the lowest possible Annual Management Charge (AMC) for your existing pension fund, you will need to set up a new pension through Cavendish Online and transfer your existing pension fund into it. We call this process 'repensioning.' The AMC on your existing pension is fixed and cannot be reduced. A new plan must be opened to obtain our AMC discount and you will then be able to transfer your existing pension into your new pension. Cavendish Online charges a one-off fee of £70.00 to cover both transactions (this charge does not apply to the SIPP as this transfer will be carried out free of charge).
How to apply?
- Choose which pension you wish to apply for.
- Your new pension company will then move the money from your old pension/s.
- You will then benefit from lower annual management charges.
