Re: Life Happened While I Made Other Plans - 8 Years On

Re: NHS Pension - to transfer or not to transfer

Yes, this was also one of the negatives, but unless you are relying in this money to live on from month to month, you can choose to bring the money over when the exchange rate is better. I do that...

Re: NHS Pension - to transfer or not to transfer

Perhaps this has been an over exaggeration from colleagues, it appears that reduced benefits will be paid from the UK pension scheme. However, whether in the UK or not, no lump sum is paid the to...

Re: NHS Pension - to transfer or not to transfer

Re: NHS Pension - to transfer or not to transfer

I know that there are lots of considerations, 'Bermundashorts', but paying tax twice over isn't a good idea either, which I thought would be case :unsure:

Re: NHS Pension - to transfer or not to transfer

Thank you for all your advice so far. I have almost 20 years in the original NHS scheme (1995) and something is telling me not to transfer it to Australia. Don't you pay tax on the transfer of the...
