The FCA ScamSmart website provides valuable information on how pension scams work, how to avoid them and what to do if you suspect a scam. Even if you have read about pension scams in the past, it is worth reminding yourself of the latest tricks and phrases scammers use to con people out of their pension savings.

If you are thinking about transferring your pension away from the MNOPF, it is very important that you understand your options. Before making any decision, the Trustee strongly encourages you to use the Pension Decision Service (provided by the MNOPF’s administrator Mercer) and/or that you seek regulated, independent financial advice.
