Pension scams are on the increase in the UK. Scammers will try to entice you with a ‘free pension review’, ‘one-off investment opportunity’ or ‘legal loophole’.

If you’re under age 55, you cannot release your pension unless you are in ill health. If you are over 55, you can release funds from your pension from April 2015. You may still be at risk from scammers.
