Have you moved funds out of a mineworkers’ pension scheme?
If so, you could be entitled to compensation. Final salary pension transfers are seldom a good idea. They come with too many guaranteed benefits to give up – particularly those supplied by the British Coal and the mining industry – and so switching to a different product is rarely worth the risk.
That’s why we’re here to help. If you think you have been wrongly advised to transfer your miners’ pension scheme, contact the team of experts at Money and Me Claims and start your claim today.
Why was the transfer a bad decision?
These schemes all have a government guarantee. This guarantee ensures that members always receive the benefits they have earned, and those benefits rise annually in line with inflation. Even if the schemes face tough financial conditions, members are still paid their yearly income. There’s no risk. And if investments generate high returns, members are awarded bonus pensions.
As a result, it is usually a bad decision to transfer out of a mineworkers’ pension. Yet over the years, lots of coal miners have been wrongly advised – by well-known and trusted firms – to do so.

If this sounds familiar – and you believe you have been misadvised regarding a miners’ final salary transfer – don’t worry. There are several routes you can take to try to mitigate your losses.
For example, you can claim for free directly to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS), the Pensions Ombudsman (TPO), or the Financial Service Compensation Scheme (FSCS). If you have it, you can claim on your personal insurance for financial mis-selling. Alternatively, if you would like a little specialist help on the matter, you can seek the help of a claims management company.
