Hi Rita,

One option is to pick the pension you want to consolidate them all into and complete the transfer forms so that the money is transferred.

However, I would suggest you look into them in a lot more detail before you do so.

There may be:

  • exit penalties if you leave a pension

  • bonus payments if you remain with a pension

  • discounts on fund charges in one

  • enhanced tax free cash with another

To name just a few of the benefits/costs you need to look out for.

If in doubt, ask your Financial Planner to help.
