ii SIPP customer stories

More and more people are moving their pensions from old, expensive schemes to our low-cost SIPP.

We talked to four interactive investor customers who have recently transferred their old-style pensions.

Which? Recommended SIPP

My research showed it was good value … and extremely flexible in terms of buying and selling.

Terry Jones moved quickly to transfer an old stakeholder pension with Aviva to an Interactive Investor SIPP in February as he had suspicions that Covid-19 could start impacting markets.

Having everything under one roof makes things much easier, as I no longer have to deal with multiple providers.

Jessica Keplinger, 37, consolidated four old-style pensions she had from jobs dating back to the first job she had in her twenties. 

I had never heard of a SIPP but I’m now completely sold. It’s incredibly straightforward.

Retired Ian Drew has just consolidated two old-style pensions into a SIPP – something he’s been meaning to do since he turned 55, two years ago.

It’s a relief to finally be in control of my own money. Making the switch was very easy – I should have done it ages ago.

Retired Richard Papiransky was fed up of paying excessive charges on his old-style pension scheme with Standard Life - and its poor performance.

Please remember, SIPPs are aimed at people happy to make their own investment decisions. Investment value can go up or down and you could get back less than you invest. You can normally only access the money from age 55 (57 from 2028). We recommend seeking advice from a suitably qualified financial advisor before making any decisions. Pension and tax rules depend on your circumstances and may change in future.
