Worksave Pension Scheme

I'm about to cash in a small pension scheme with Legal and General which has gone up a total of 1% in total over the last five years. I complained, giving examples of other pension schemes, the FTSE etc etc, but apparently I have no cause for complaint. Avoid at all costs!!!!!! Reviewed on: 30th May 2024

Legal & General stymie changing banks

1
Legal & General make changing your pension-receiving bank details virtually impossible. Having been encouraged to opt for paperless correspondence by my bank and by Legal & General, I not not have any hard copy documentation. When attempting to change bank details within the L&G portal they request hardcopy proof of the new bank account details, which of course L&G and banks enthusiastically discourage. They will accept electronic correspondence but, for security reasons, banks do not transmit bank account information via email. What should be a two minute admin process turns into a very protracted, time-wasting distraction which consumes weeks/moths of your time. I find the nonchalant arrogance of Legal & General quite astonishing. Only when I have the right to move my pension fund to an alternative provider without penalty will failing organisations such as Legal & General move to change. Reviewed on: 24th January 2024

EDF energy forced their employees out of a DB pension scheme and forced us in to a DC pension with L&G and it appears it's turned out to be an dreadful decision for EDF energy staff as we are loosing money with L&G. Reviewed on: 19th January 2024
