UK Pension Transfers for South African residents

Transferring your UK pension into an overseas pension scheme is something many expats choose to do, as it can be quite lucrative, depending on the type of overseas plan you choose and your country of residency. However, before deciding to undergo the transfer process, you need to be aware of the South African pension legislation and regulation as well as the fees that will apply, so it’s important to educate yourself first.

The Benefits of Choosing Brite to Transfer Your Pension Overseas

If you live in South Africa, transferring your UK pension overseas brings with it a host of benefits, especially if you plan to see out your retirement there.

  • Expansion of choices – A pension transfer could lead to increased death benefits – improved risk control and earlier access to savings
  • Foreign exchange control – Multiple currency options are available when you want to withdraw your pension income

Some Applicable & Appropriate Requirements of the FAIS
Legislation are:

  • be licensed to furnish advice, and/or render any intermediary services, or both, relating to financial products
  • compliance with the prescribed fit and proper criteria to ensure integrity, skill and competencies
