You have moved away from the UK and have settled into your new home, the kids are starting to settle in at school and the new job hasn’t started to become a chore. With every passing week the new country is starting to feel like home as opposed to a long holiday and you start to settle in to a new normal. It is usually at this point that we start to think of things in the country we used to call home and the things we have left there, family, friends, familiar food and MONEY! After a certain period of time , we start to focus our attention on the financial aspect of our lives and this usually brings us around to the conversation of pensions and how much has been left with previous employers, or built up in private schemes, and how much am I entitled to from the UK government?
This list is not exhaustive and moving your pension is a big decision that should always be based on professional advice.
