    Default Prudential Pension

    I have the State pension, a small NHS pension and an even smaller AVC.
    This AVC was as a result of compensation paid to all staff when Equitable Life Collapsed.
    We were given a choice of putting this small amount into Scottish Widows or The Prudential not knowing any better at the time I chose the Pru (remember the man from the Pru calling for his money!)

    When the time came to get my NHS pension I asked about this as I had never added to this AVC I was told it was now a separate item and would be treated as such.
    Through the last four or five years I have tried to get this as a lump sum as it works out at just over £11 .00 PER YEAR.
    Been told I could not get it as Triviality nor was it available under the draw out scheme introduced by the government.
    Phoned them again and one of the messages was about a review regarding bad advice.
    I did some digging and found this.

    Phoned again and was told I was eligible but they had no idea of time scale do I get in touch with the FRA again
    It must cost them more to process this small amount

    Thank you @Enid.
    Will save and digest this.
    To date almost every person I have spoken to at Prudential either try and bamboozle me or sound about 12!

    Sorry this is really not an area that I am au fait with. Hopefully someone out there has better knowledge and can give some sensible pointers.

    Thank you.
    Just to be clear I am already receiving this small amount of just over £11.00 have to pay tax as well!
    Throughout Prudential have denied or refused me when I tried with triviality and again when the recent changes in pension rules I was told that this particular AVC is not part of the scheme.
    I could understand it if it was a lot of money but it isn't.

    £11 per year, jeez it's hardly worth the admin, but you have it for life cash it in and you pay tax and it's gone.

    I know but that would be very useful at the moment!
    I cannot understand it costs them more to process it every year and sending me the tax return, currently about £1.00!
