Had a long and successful working career in the US? As a result, do you have a pension pot with a US bank or investment company?

If this is the case, it is likely that you may have been asked to move your account. There has been a growing trend in the US to freeze accounts that are owned by Non Resident Aliens, that is, anyone who is not American and does not live in the USA.  The reasons for such actions have been attributed to the Patriot’s Act and FATCA but the result is the same: an effective loss of control over the operation of your US pension savings.

Over and above the challenge presented with finding a new home for your US pension, there are several other issues to address if you are British and the owner of a US pension:

  • How does the US  investment portfolio add or detract from my other retirement savings and investments?
  • How do I account for the fact that I have a future income stream in US Dollars?
  • How does my UK financial advisor report this account as part of my overall household wealth reporting?

We can help with all of the above and one of our dual US/UK qualified financial advisors would be pleased to discuss this with you.
