No. Pension benefits held in a final salary scheme are protected by the Scheme Rules and Government legislation. Therefore, the pension benefits you’ve built up by the time you leave the company will at least receive statutory increases until you retire.
If you hold a money purchase personal pension, the pension fund is held in your own name and will continue to accumulate depending on the underlying assets of the fund. However, employer contributions into your pension pot will stop.
You can transfer a defined contribution pension to a new pension fund if you move employers.

Impressed with how personable and straight forward the conversations were. Would definitely recommend to others.
Extremely satisfied with the help and advice from Drew, since the beginning him understood what I was looking for and had the patience to help me out with all my questions and doubts. Didn’t try to be pushy or annoying calling me all the time like so many did before. At the end we found the perfect medical policy for me and my daughter that covers everything that we need. I more than recommend them and if in the future I need something else for sure I will contact them again. Giving only 5 stars because I can’t give 6!!!!
Egle was brilliant in guiding us through the options available for relevant life insurance, took care of all the paperwork and presenting suitable options to us and deciphering all the jargon for us. Highly recommended!
