Defined Benefit Transfers
These are often referred to as a final salary pensions
Defined benefit schemes are becoming less common due to the high level of benefits that can accrue from years of working in the same company.
Sometimes leaving the scheme where it is, is the best course of action. Help from a financial adviser will often be helpful in deciding what balance of cash and income is most appropriate for your needs.
There can be circumstances where an individual may choose to transfer benefits away from the scheme in exchange for a large lump sum which gets paid into a new scheme. This is known as a final salary transfer.
