How to transfer your ii SIPP to another provider

The following instructions are for transfers to a:

  • Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP)
  • Personal Pension
  • Stakeholder Pension
  • Public Service Pension Scheme
  • Master Trust Scheme
  • Collective Money Purchase Scheme
  • Deferred Annuity
  • Section 32 Buy Out

You will need to follow separate instructions to transfer to a Small Self-Administered Scheme (SSAS), Occupational Pension Scheme or a Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme (QROPS).

The steps you need to take to transfer your SIPP depend on how you plan to transfer it.

  • If you are selling the investments in your SIPP and transferring cash to a provider which uses the Origo service, then you will not need to complete a transfer form. Instead, please contact the provider you are transferring to. Your new provider will arrange the transfer electronically. 
  • If you are selling your investments in your SIPP and transferring cash to a provider which does not use the Origo service, then you will need to complete and return a transfer out form.
  • If you are transferring the investments in your SIPP, including any cash balance, then you will need to complete and return a transfer out form.
