We love hearing from our clients...We applied to you from an article in the Daily Mirror, as my husband was getting confused about what he should do with the money in his personal pension, and the pension providers were not very helpful. A lovely lady telephoned my husband and explained what his options were, in language which a layman could understand. We are both so pleased with this excellent service,we would heartily recommend it to anyone. Lin and Mick Bentley
I am writing to express my sincere appreciation and great satisfaction for the work personally done on my behalf in the acquisition of an excellent annuity rate. The actual rate obtained for me has resulted in an increase of around 27% to my income which is hugely significant to me in retirement. I have no hesitation in recommending Retirement Solutions to anyone in the process of searching for the best deal for their Open Market Option funds transfer. Mr. P. Burke

THE BASICS EXPLAINED
A )An annuity is an arrangement where you make a lump-sum investment. From this investment you receive a guaranteed level of income. Basically, an annuity converts a savings fund into income and that income will be paid to you for the rest of your life.An annuity is payable for your lifetime, although it is possible to select a fixed period if purchasing an annuity with cash rather than pension funds.You are then entitled to use your Open Market Option, which allows you to transfer the fund value to another annuity provider of your choice.This enables you to take advantage of a higher annuity income which may be available from a different provider.
