UK to AUS lump sum payments

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have been in communication with my late wife’s SIPP pension scheme in the UK. I do not seem to have any choice in what I should do but to take the benefit as a lump sum option. I am on disability payments in Australia due to an mva in 2016. The benefit would be used to pay off some of my mortgage and pay back the funeral costs of my late wife.  It seems wrong to call a benefit a benefit when you do not actually gain anything.


Are you able to assist?

Firstly I am sorry to hear about your Wife, my deepest condolences.

In relation to your question and whether we can assist, I am not entirely sure of what you are asking me sorry, perhaps I could ask you to email me directly to Andrew@vistafs.com.au ?
