Many customers were told by Scottish Widows 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, Scottish Widows 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 Scottish Widows 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 Scottish Widows.
