Annuity Claims Guide

The FCA has recently completed it's review of annuity sales that have taken place over the past 8 years and the conclusion of the report was that almost half a million retirees may have been "mis-sold" their annuity by their pension provider. The numbers are quite shocking for such a highly regulated industry. There have been 400,000 annuities sold since the time-period the FCA review covers, since 2008.

It is anticipated that annuity claims will run into the £Billions.

The review shows how the mis-selling took place, which was simply because incumbent insurance companies did not ask or receive for all the relevant information at the point of sale.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has openly stated that the rules have been broken on a major scale.

In what way were annuities mis-sold?

The Financial Conduct Authority review came to the conclusion that around half of pension holders purchased an annuity from a different company than the one who actually held their pension pot. However, in almost all the cases of those that bought their annuity from their pension provider were mis-sold.

The most common annuity mis-selling practices were.

1. You were not encouraged to "shop around"

2. You were not informed about any hidden fees or charges

3. You were in ill-health but not offered an "enhanced annuity"

4. You weren't asked about your health or any medical conditions

5. You were sold a single-life annuity where a joint-life annuity would have been a more suitable option

6. You were not informed about the possibility of an inflation linked annuity

Which pension providers are involved in annuity mis-selling?

The FCA review openly criticised 2 of the largest pension providers, Standard Life and the Prudential. However, the review also concluded that all providers were open to this type of mis-selling so even if the company you purchased your annuity from is not on this list, it's still worth finding out if you have cause to make a claim.
