Thinking of Taking on Your Pension Provider Single-Handed?
If you believe that your pension scheme has been mis-sold to you, we always strongly recommend that you approach an expert to pursue any claim for compensation you may wish to make.
It is often tempting to try your hand at fighting for compensation unassisted, but unless you have a seasoned expert in mis-sold pensions at your side, you are very likely to be turned down. Using a simple template letter from the internet is a risky approach that is rarely successful.
Naturally, pension providers will wish to avoid any and all compensation claims and will reject the majority of attempts, particularly if they suspect that doing so will immediately dissuade the claimant from any further action – which is usually the case for lone actors.
Opt for the Tried and Tested Method
Luckily, the Mis-Sold Mortgages Experts have extensive experience in fighting the corner of any individual who is eligible for compensation as the result of a mis-sold pension scheme. We know how to put together a solid claim in order to prevent it from being refuted, and we would always recommend that you come to us before attempting to pursue a claim alone or through the use of a template letter.
There are a number of common issues that those who try to pursue their own claim alone tend to come up against. One is a lack of readily available evidence. You may now have no records of the meetings you had with your pension adviser that led you to purchase an unsuitable pension – however, the Mis-Sold Mortgages Experts have the know-how needed to navigate archives and locate all the information you need.
I’ve Tried to Claim and I’ve Been Turned Down – What Do I Do Now?
If your claim for compensation has been rejected, it may be because you genuinely do not qualify. It’s important to look over your pension arrangement and ask yourself whether the adviser who sold it to you:
- Explained all fees inherent in the scheme thoroughly and in a way you understood
- Took all of the information you gave them into account and properly assessed your current finances
- Correctly explained the payout you’d receive and upon which factors this depended
- Told you about all possible risks in full
If they failed to do any of the above or made claims that the amount you would receive from your pension scheme would definitely allow you to achieve something in particular – for example, to pay off your mortgage – then you are likely to have a strong claim for compensation despite any initial rejections.
