AA Pension Scheme

Frequently Asked AA Pension Scheme Questions

What is a pension scam?

A Pension Scam is a transfer of your pension savings to an arrangement that does not use your savings in an authorised way. The most common form of Pension Scam is the transfer of your pension to an arrangement which allows you to access your savings before the age of 55, the current legal minimum pension age if you are in good health.

Pension Scams may be fraudulent if you are misled or misinformed about the consequences of entering into one of these arrangements. Pension Scams may result in you losing all of your savings and still having to pay tax charges and penalties of more than half the value of your transfer.

The Pensions Regulator has produced a new leaflet and booklet to help you understand the risks you face when considering a transfer of your pension savings.

What should you do if you think you are being targeted by a pension scam?
