British Steel Pension Scheme Claims
In August 2017, the pension regulator gave Tata Steel permission to close the British Steel Pension Scheme. Members of the scheme then had a decision to make. One of the options they had was to let their pension fall into the Pension Protection Fund, the government scheme that handles corporate pension plans that fail.
Another option steelworkers had was to move their pension to a less generous new version of the British Steel Pension Scheme. Many steelworkers also had a third option, however. This was to get a lump sum from their British Steel Pension Scheme and then transfer that to a private pension.
The latter option meant taking professional investment advice, which is where things started to go wrong for many British Steel pension holders.

Problems with the British Steel Pension Scheme and Related Transfer Advice
Concerns about the advice being given to steelworkers came to prominence following an investigation by a pensions expert. That expert found that many of the workers had little understanding of what they were agreeing to with their pensions and the risks involved.
In fact, at least one firm has agreed to a request from the FCA to stop offering advice to steelworkers to transfer their pensions.
