Before you transfer, check you won't lose out by doing so. And remember, investing carries risk - investments can fall and rise in value, and you could get back less that you put in.

*Transferring a pension?

You can transfer most types of pensions to Dodl, except:

  • a final salary or other defined benefit pension

  • a pension you’ve already taken income from

  • a pension which is subject to a court order (e.g. a divorce sharing order)

Before you transfer, check how the Dodl pension compares to your existing pension – to make sure transferring it is right for you. It’s also important to check if you’ll be charged to leave your existing provider.

Transferring your current workplace pension is possible but you’ll lose out on the benefit of your employer’s contributions.

If you’re not sure about transferring your pension, make sure you speak to a suitable financial adviser about this before you make your decision.

Transfers needn't be scary!

Gone are the days when you'd choose a provider and stick with them through thick and thin, just to avoid the pain and price of moving somewhere else.

Your savings and investments are your future, so it's vital you keep them somewhere which works best for you.

Transferring your accounts - be it an ISA, lifetime ISA, pension or general investment account - is now easier than ever and can give you greater control over your financial future.

    Important to know

    Always remember, the value of investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you originally invested. Dodl doesn’t offer any advice so if you’re not sure about the risks involved with investing, you should speak to a financial adviser about this. Rules around ISAs, pensions and tax apply. How you're taxed will depend on your circumstances, and tax rules can change.
