After spending 11 months vainly trying to access pension benefits apparently “lost” by the large FTSE 100 corporate employee benefits company representing my multinational former employer I was getting nowhere!
Initially, the pension scheme managers and Trustees tried to withhold my benefits – then then tried to devalue them.
I was introduced to Robert Briggs of Briggs Murray Actuarial Ltd by Josephine Cumbo, the Financial Times pensions correspondent.
Due to the expertise, veracity and persistence of Briggs Murray (it took a further 12 months!) I eventually achieved a positive result in excess of £150K from the pension scheme.
This was very pleasing considering I was originally informed I was not entitled to anything!
If anyone has any concerns about the accuracy of their pension scheme entitlements I would thoroughly recommend having them reviewed by Briggs Murray.

Argentis have been working with Briggs Murray Actuarial for over a year and their TVA reports are being used across the company by all of our pension transfer specialists. We are extremely impressed with the speed of service and level of detailed calculations that can be provided by the team. This has proven to be invaluable in providing our clients with a clear and concise TVAS report that allows them to understand their position and make an informed decision. We would highly recommend their services.
Corville Wealth Management have been working with Briggs Murray for over a year and we are using there service for all our defined benefit transfer work. We have been pleased by the reports previously and delighted with the new reports which we can detail all costs for the client and prepare a bespoke report based on the solution we recommend. This is both valuable to the client and to our regulator, as the client is then in the best position to understand the options and choices they have regarding their scheme. We would highly recommend their service.
We have been working with Briggs Murray for a few months now and the quality of the work is exceptional. The modeller tool allows us to bring TVAS reports to life and in a way that truly reflects the client’s position and the ability to potentially utilise pension freedoms. The team are always on hand to assist with queries and updates and provide detailed calculations as and when required. We cannot recommend Briggs Murray highly enough.
We started using Briggs Murray for TVAS reports earlier this year and we now use them for every case. Importantly, the service is quick and reliable, helping us meet transfer deadlines more comfortably. The online drawdown modeller is a welcome addition making the reports themselves more valuable to clients.
