Small pension pots to be consolidated says DWP

No doubt these consolidators will be charging a high fee and these modest pots will be worthless come retirement.

Default “consolidator” schemes will be created to sweep up small deferred pension pots worth less than £1,000.

It means savers with workplace pensions that they are no longer contributing to will be transferred automatically to a consolidator (or consolidators), although they will be able to opt out of “auto-consolidation” if they prefer to stay with their existing pension provider.
