Can I transfer my UK pension to an IRA?

The transfer of a UK workplace pension or personal pension to any US retirement account, including an IRA, is not permitted by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). However, there can be benefits to transferring your UK pension to a fully flexible UK pension like a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP). Before determining whether a pension transfer could be of benefit, it is important for a financial advisor like Florin Pensions to understand your retirement needs and objectives.
