There are an increasing number of companies claiming they can offer you high growth investment options outside of your current pension arrangement or help you access your pension as cash early. You need to be very careful if a company says they can do this for you. Often these arrangements can put your savings at unnecessary risk or result in tax charges and penalties of more than half the pot’s value and you won’t be told about this. If you’re concerned you should consider taking advice from an independent financial adviser. The Pension Regulator has more information about this HERE.
