Number of transfers out of DB pension schemes

FOI reference - FOI-4081
Date - 5 September 2019


How many people in the UK you estimate have transferred out of their Defined Benefit Pension Schemes in the last year

  • could you please also tell me, if possible, the value that has been transferred out of the DB pension schemes
  • if possible, and within the constraints of the FOI request, could you also tell me how many of these transfers were made to Defined Contribution schemes

If possible, I would also like this data for each of the most recent five complete years, broken down by equal twelve-month periods. Please use a year end of 31 March, or whichever year end date is most convenient.

If you are unable to provide five years of data please provide three years of data, otherwise please provide data for the last year.


I can confirm that we hold information falling within scope of your request.  However, we are unable to supply the information requested for the reason set out below.

Information we are not able to supply

Section 21 – Information accessible to applicant by other means

I can confirm that we hold this information.  However, it is exempt from disclosure under Section 21 of the FoIA.  This is because the information is accessible to you, as it is already in the public domain.

All information that we hold around your request was recently issued in a previous FOI response (FOI-3870).

This has now been published on our website.
