Carolyn Jones, pensions expert at the Money and Pensions Service said:
“We know that Coronavirus has lead to an increase in uncertainty but it’s crucial not to rush into any pension decisions. A small amount of time on the phone with a pension specialist could make all the difference, helping you to avoid risking the retirement savings you’ve built up over your working life. For free impartial guidance on how to avoid pension scams call The Pensions Advisory Service helpline on 0800 011 3797.”
