  • The new mandatory one-page Pension Transfer Summary;
  • Additional Workplace Pension Scheme Options;
  • A new Abridged Advice Report Template;
  • Expanded descriptive text for TVC.

Retirement Plans → Existing Defined Benefit Scheme or Other Occupational → Pension Transfer TVC / Pension Transfer Critical Yield

The new options and descriptive text are designed to provide a comprehensive explanation of the TVC, CY and Hurdle Rate analysis.

Consideration of the availability of a Workplace Pension Scheme during a Full Advice DB Transfer Report

If a qualifying DC WPS is available to a client the adviser will be prompted for the required justification as to why it is or isn't a suitable retirement vehicle.  Advisers can also recommend transferring a DB Scheme to a DC WPS.
