Focus 114 – Expression of Wishes

Have you spoken to your client about the completion of an Expression of Wishes form?

We are at the start of a new tax year when you may be contacting your clients to ensure they make the most of their new pension and ISA allowance.  It may also be worthwhile to have a conversation with them about their Expression of Wishes form.

With the 2015 changes to the death benefit options, it is essential that Expression of Wishes forms are reviewed frequently and new forms are completed on the death of a member, dependant, nominee or successor to ensure there is always a valid form on file. Should there be no indication of who the scheme administrator should pay the benefits to, they are compelled to pay a dependant if possible which may not be the wish of the member.
