How to transfer a SIPP
Our helpful guide takes you through the process of transferring your SIPP in easy steps.
How long does transferring take?
Transferring your pension as a cash payment usually takes around 10 days to complete from receipt of your transfer request. If you’d like to transfer in your existing investments then the transfer will take longer - typically 8 to 12 weeks, depending on the type of investments you hold. For cash transfers, stocks need to be sold prior to making the transfer. Timings also depend on how quickly your current provider works with us to arrange your transfer.

You should ensure that you won't lose any valuable benefits, like guarantees or bonuses, and you should find out what your exit fees will be before starting. If you're unsure, we recommend seeking the advice of a qualified financial adviser.
