Don't get scammed

A key part of being pensions savvy is making sure you can recognise a scam.

Unfortunately there are people and organisations who will try to take your pension savings from you by convincing you to invest in an amazing offer, or to dip into your savings before age 55. There are four simple steps to protect yourself from pension scams:

  1. Reject unexpected offers
  2. Check who you’re dealing with using the FCA Register
  3. Don’t be rushed or pressured
  4. Get impartial information or advice
