Are you thinking of moving your UK Pension to the US

Pension legislation in the UK has changed in recent years, but have you kept up? If you are living the United States with preserved pensions in the UK, you must make sure your pension plan is keeping up with the times.

One option to consider is a Self-invested Personal Pension, or SIPP for short. A SIPP works in the same way as other private pensions which you may be familiar with, however there tends to be greater flexibility in terms of investment choice, meaning you can tailor a retirement plan to suit your individual personal needs.

If you worked in the UK for 10 years or more and hold a Defined Benefit or ‘Final Salary’ pension with a value in excess of £200,000, this e-guide is a must read.

By reviewing their existing private pensions, many Brits abroad find they can;

  • Take a bigger tax free lump sum upon retirement
  • Consolidate their old UK pensions into one place
  • Draw income through retirement to suit their needs
  • Avoid pension tax allowance charges
  • Improve their tax efficiency
  • Pass more on to loved ones
