There is info on the Inland Revenue website and the Pensions Advisory Service site at http://www.pensionsadvisoryservice.org.uk/pension_rights/overseas_transfers/ Some more info in these articles: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/main.jhtml?xml=/money/2005/02/12/cmretire12.xml http://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/main.jhtml?xml=/money/2006/08/05/cmsun05.xml&sSheet=/money/2006/08/05/ixperson.html http://money.uk.msn.com/MyMoney/Insight/Money_Spinner/article.aspx?cp-documentid=143697&wa=wsignin1.0 It’s something you should really take professional advice on to find out if it worthwhile doing.
