NHS pension transfer

NHS pension transfer

A stalled NHS pension transfer to Australia can be moved to New Zealand

Thousands of NHS pension transfers have been stalled following the removal of Australian QROPS from the QROPS list.
With little chance of Australian QROPS returning to the QROPS list many people are choosing to redirect their previously initiated NHS pension transfer to a New Zealand QROPS.
If you have previously applied for a Cash Equivalent Transfer Value and were in the process of an NHS pension transfer to an Australian QROPS you can easily switch your NHS pension transfer to a New Zealand superannuation scheme. But be warned this is the final chance to transfer out (as the NHS will allow this one-off redirect)
If you select the right type of QROPS in New Zealand you can also get a lot of benefits, including:

  • No longer being at the mercy of UK pension changes
  • The flexibility of being in a QROPS and therefore able to transfer out of the scheme in the future (unlike being stuck in an Australian scheme if you transfer into it)
  • Having significant tax advantages over leaving it in the UK to be paid as a pension to you in Australia

We have moved hundreds of NHS pensions from the UK to New Zealand and can help you now. But time is limited as the NHS will not hold open transfers. Avoid delay and contact us today to unstick your NHS pension transfer.

very stress free

Thank you Cambel for your help and guidance throughout this process in getting my pension transferred (very stress free for me). It is greatly appreciated and I would certainly recommend you and Charter Square to others who are interested in transferring their pension.

You guys rock!

I just wanted to say a great big thank you to you and your team. You are all totally awesome. I received a cheque yesterday from the Prudential to apologise for the ‘recent inconvenience’ that I had experienced. Thank you for doing this for me. You guys rock!

Noelle B, New Zealand

professional, insightful

Charter Square were professional, insightful and a pleasure to work with. They rose to the challenge of consolidating my overseas pensions and bringing them home with minimum fuss for me and maximum effort on their part.

Jens H, New Zealand

thorough, professional and prompt

Very thorough, professional and prompt service from the team at Charter Square. Thanks for making the bewildering world of pension transfers super simple.

Jules T, New Zealand

Best party to deal with

Thank you kindly for keeping in touch with me. For now, I will not be moving my pension. I will however be keeping your details and referring back to you when I wish to pursue. You by far are the best party to deal with, no nonsense, professional and in my opinion genuine. I do sincerely thank you for your advice to date.

Securing the freedom to use savings that are actually ours to work with has been stressful in the extreme. While I never planned on giving up there were many times when the current (UK) holder made the whole process seem well beyond my determination and ability. It’s easy to look at the 36 month history of this claim with the benefit of hindsight, but the conclusion is that employing Charter Square in the first instance would have been wise had I been able to anticipate the red-tape that appears to have been deliberately created to stall access.
