Transparent - no hidden fees
• Our plans have one simple annual fee ranging from 0.50% to 0.95%. We halve that fee on the portion of your pension over £100,000
• A withdrawal fee of £150 applies in certain circumstances; when accessing your pension within the first 12 months of being with us or if the value of your account’s less than £150 at the point of withdrawal

• FSCS protection for your savings in the unlikely event that we, or one of our money managers, fails. Due to the structure of our investments your pension savings are protected through a contract of long-term insurance up to 100% of their value once fully invested with us, unlike some providers where your pension’s only protected up to £85,000.

It’s quick and easy to get started - sign up in the app
• Sign up in minutes for free
• Tell us about your pensions by sharing your provider name or policy number, then confirm your transfer
• We’ll reach out to your provider to transfer your pension and keep you updated.

As with any investment, the value of your PensionBee pension can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you started with.

Quick and super easy

I am self employed and had a flexible pension with another provider that I could not drawdown.
I explored using financial advisors to find an alternative product, but could not see how they justify the high commission and charges they would immediately apply to my pension pot.
I needed the transfer to be done quickly to finance a house purchase and was also told by them that it could take up to three months so decided I could not go down this route.
ENTER PENSIONBEE.
I loved the fact that there was no charge for the transfer of my pension to them, and their low annual charge was spread throughout the year.
I was super happy that my transfer was all completed in under 3 weeks, and is already showing a much better return than my previous provider.
I can even check on my fund anytime, anywhere unlike my previous pension provider.
If you have any doubts about switching your pension to PENSIONBEE my personal experience has been great.
I should have done this years ago!
All in all, I can only give it 5 stars
Very impressed.

Amazing!

Since making the move to self employed after 10 years of being employed with various pension pots held with different providers, I needed to get all my pensions in once place. This app has made it so much easier than I thought it would be and the personal customer contact has been excellent. They even found a pension I’d completely forgotten about and asked if I wanted to move that one over to the app too.

Couldn’t be happier with the app and the customer service and have been nagging all my friends to do the same thing since!

Good service, so-so app

I think the PensionBee service itself is quite good. However, it’s patently obvious that nobody involved in the development of this app actually genuinely uses this app for their own pensions.

The retirement planner is a joke - none of the settings you set are actually saved. So the retirement projection chart (which would be really useful) is immediately reset to just whatever you happen to have with PensionBee, and doesn’t take into account other pensions or personal contributions, giving a completely useless number that’s got nothing to do with reality.

Previously sliding the planner sliders would half the time accidentally send you to the previous screen, but they’ve fixed that, so maybe there’s hope for the retirement planner to one day be useful for... y’know, planning your retirement.

Hi Groenroos, thanks for sharing your feedback. It's great to hear that you've been impressed with our service, but I'm sorry to hear about the issues you're having with our app. I can see that a member of our team is in contact with your via email to discuss this further. I hope we can fix this improve your experience moving forward. Thanks again, Tom - Team PensionBee
