The article reports on Barclays, British Airways and Royal Mail pension schemes switching in order to ensure access to comprehensive and clear information for pension scheme members. Members should follow rules such as taking time to understand the information and regularly reviewing the pension to ensure they get the best and not to be the subject of disappointment at retirement. Meanwhile, Barclay's current scheme is a hybrid with a cash balance account and an investment account.
