If you were not asked about your medical condition prior to purchasing, you may be missing out on extra income and be entitled to a mis-sold annuity claim. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has recently found that 80% of pensioners who purchased an annuity could have received a better pension income.
Pension Annuity Mis-selling
Many retired people with private or company pensions will have purchased an annuity. In return for the money saved in the pension, the annuity provider will pay an income for the rest of your life.
Did you want your pension payments to keep up with inflation? You probably wanted your pension annuity payments to increase over time in line with inflation. If you weren’t given this option and you expect a long retirement, you may have a claim.
Did you suffer from certain medical conditions prior to your retirement? You are likely to have been entitled to an ‘enhanced pension annuity’. This takes into account your medical condition. This may have resulted in a substantial increase in your pension income.
How do I make a claim for a mis-sold pension annuity?
You can only complain once. You can pursue a claim directly to the annuity provider free of charge, or go directly to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
However, It can be a long and complex process and a struggle to receive a true level of compensation. The provider will heavily defend their position but by using our expertise, we ensure your claim is taken seriously. X-Claims Ltd provides you with expert representation. We have the knowledge required to change outcomes, often resulting in substantial cash settlements.
