Legal & General’s pension annuities are ‘Highly commended’

Annuity provider recognised by a panel of experts at the Moneywise 2012 pension awards

LONDON--()--Legal & General has been voted Highly Commended in the Best Annuity provider category in the Moneywise 2012 pension awards.

“We’re delighted that a respected consumer publication like Moneywise has recognised us as highly commended. They, like us, have long been committed to helping people make informed financial decisions using everyday language. And there are few purchases where making an informed decision is more important than buying an annuity.”

The award was announced in the September issue of the magazine and was based on the providers offering the most competitive annuity rates and best quality service. An expert panel comprising senior executives of four respected independent financial planning and investment advisers, voted on the awards.

Head of Annuity Product Development, Tim Gosden who accepted the award was grateful for the recognition of Legal & General’s annuity service; “We’re delighted that a respected consumer publication like Moneywise has recognised us as highly commended. They, like us, have long been committed to helping people make informed financial decisions using everyday language. And there are few purchases where making an informed decision is more important than buying an annuity.

We think it’s important to enable annuity customers to shop around and buy their annuity direct from us, if they feel confident to do so. Our consumer website and knowledgeable quote team are dedicated to helping customers understand pension annuities and their annuity buying options.“

Tim added; “Access to independent financial advice may be a little harder to come by for people with ‘small’ funds once the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) adviser charging changes come into effect at the end of the year. So we expect more customers to look to buy direct and we can help them make sure they don’t miss out on extra income for life based on their health.”
