Many customers were told by Criterion Assurance to transfer their pension benefits from a work based pension to a private pension. In most cases these pensions would not provide any additional benefits, Criterion Assurance did not tell their customers that transferring their pension would typically result in a loss of benefits such as a final salary scheme or matching contributions.

Some providers such as Criterion Assurance promoted that the pension they offered would out perform the workplace pension, this would not be the case with a riskier stock based pension and the advice given to millions of clients has been condemned by the regulator of Criterion Assurance.
