Cash Equivalent Transfer Value (CETV)

Do I have a right to a CETV?

If you are in a funded Final Salary Pension Scheme you have a right to a Cash Equivalent Transfer Value. The scheme must provide this within 3 months of any request. You do not have a legal right to a CETV in the 12-month period before retirement (although some schemes will provide this.) You are entitled to one free CETV in any 12-month period.

There is no legal right for a retired member to receive a CETV and active members who require more than one in a 12 month period also have to pay for the second valuation.
