Independent financial advice

NHS Pensions and Pensions Officers cannot give you financial advice.

You should seek independent financial advice about the best pension arrangements for you.

Types of advisers

All financial advisers have to decide whether to be ‘independent’ or ‘restricted’.

An independent financial adviser can offer a range of financial services and products.

A restricted financial adviser can only offer products from one company or a selection of companies.

Before you ask for advice, make sure you know which type of adviser you’re dealing with. Most advisers charge for their advice.

Finding advisers

Your Pensions Officer may help you find independent financial advice.

For a list of local companies, you can go to:

www.findanadvisor.org

Check whether the Financial Conduct Authority authorises your chosen adviser/company.
