I have recently converted a pension pot to an annuity and used the services of Happy2retire. The pension pot was quite small and was not my main pension source. Notwithstanding Happy2retire provided me with a friendly and efficient service and, to the best of my knowledge, got the best deal they could for me through Just Retirement. Coincidentally JR is the company that provides my husband's annuity so I believe that they are competitive. I was pleased with the way that I was treated by Happy2retire and should be happy to recommend them to a friend.
My executive contact Cadena Bridge provided a top class service. She was highly professional, good to work with and sensitive to what I was looking for. Information was provided in a very clear and accurate way by email and by post. She found me an excellent provider, and at a very good level. I would highly recommend this service to anyone.

I found dealing with Happy2retire simple and uncomplicated. they take your personal information and the details of your existing pension(s) then come back with a number of different quotes for annuities. It was then easy for me to decide which quote suited me best. Once the decision was made they handled the transfer quickly and efficiently.
Happy2retire made the whole process of finding the right annuity very simple. Very friendly to deal with by phone and by email, and I was impressed with all the documentation provided which was also very easy to complete. I was kept well informed of the status of my application throughout. I encountered no problems and all and would definitely recommend Happy2retire to anyone.
I found the company on the internet, and found them to be very efficient, and the most important factor the annuity rate was better than my pension company - Friends life were offering. I did some research in the company, and was satisfied with the results I found, so decided to proceed with them. The whole process proceeded with no problems at all, and when I did have to ring the phones were answered promptly by a real person!
I recommend Happy2retire as they were very responsive and efficient in their communications. It made the task of finding the right provider for my pension very straight forward and at the end of the end of the day I felt I could trust them in the judgements they made. There were no misunderstandings and I was dealt with in a patient and pleasant way.
No hesitation in recommending them
The staff were so friendly it was just as though I had known them personally for years. Nothing was too much trouble and all my questions were answered quickly and in a way that I could understand. I did approach a couple more companies but I returned to Happy2retire, not only because they gave me the best deal, but because of the way that I was treated. I was so satisfied that have recommended them to my wife's friend, Maria, who is about to retire. The name of the company says it all.
I would recommend Happy2retire to anyone who was needing to find the right annuity for their pension. I met with helpful courtesy and it was all very easy to understand. Once I had chosen my particular plan it was all dealt with efficiency.
Happy to Retire have been very efficient in researching the best options for my small annuity. Where I have been indecisive they have happily re-done quotations quickly and with a friendly helpful attitude. Their attentive attitude made sure that I did not forget to keep to deadlines, as this is important when deciding which company to go with. Quotes are given at the current rate at that time so delaying can make a difference to what you can eventually get for your money.
I found Happy2retire through the internet - I knew they were the right people for me from the moment I placed my enquiry with them. They got me an enhanced better pension than any I had been offered elsewhere and were professional, prompt and friendly in every aspect of our transactions - I would not hesitate in recommending Happy2retire to anyone
Happy2retire made everything completely hassle-free.
From my initial enquiry until the end, I could not believe how quickly and easily everything was dealt with. The whole process took less than a month!
The pension amount Happy2retire were dealing with, on my behalf, was relatively small, but this did not affect the efficient way everything was handled.
I would not hesitate to recommend Happy2retire.
After shopping around for the best "offer"I decided on this Co. mainly because they communicate daily through the whole process and they are not pushy..
One thing,at one stage the communication between Dpts. it seems that went broken,I had to give the same info twice,but the overall results,which it what it matters went fine,my big pension comes when I am 65 next year and I will be contacting them again.
Very best wishes
Found Happy to retire very helpful even though I would phone them up with my repeated
questions I had already ask them they never got angry they just answered politely
also I was happy with the annuity company they found me I think its given me the best
return for my money I could hope fore.
At the start of this process I was stressed out trying to make the right decision on the best way forward then I contacted Happy2retire.co.uk and straight away the relaxed and friendly staff guided me through the process and made it trouble free I`m just waiting for my M&S vouchers now, - bonus !!
I was very unsure about using a web sight to do my pension but Happy2retire made it very easy and straight forward and must thank them for helping me through what I expected to be a headache.
I contacted Happy2retire because I had two pension pots with different companies and was not sure how to organise matters for the best. While Stacey, Leanne and Richard made it clear that they were not financial advisors, they took all the leg work away by comparing the annuities offered from a number of companies. They dealt with the paperwork required by all providers both old and new and were extremely pleasant and efficient.
Nobody really bothers about pensions until the retirement age comes around, and then you are inundated with forms and booklets, holding reams of information.
When I found Happy2retire, Lauren took charge of the whole process to get the best deal for me. I didn't have to do anything, except give her my personal details, and the company providing my pension plan.
From beginning to end it was completely hassle-free, and for me, also a free service. I can't thank enough, all the people who were involved in this. A great service.
This company were the most helpful people I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.
Always available to answer questions when needed,always friendly (even when it seemed to ME that I was contacting them too often), extremely efficient and always called back when they said they would if they didn't have the information immediatly to hand.
I would thoroughly reccomend them to anybody who is seeking to obtain an annuity.
I've got to say that the service was seamless and totally professional and provided me with the best return for my pensions. I would not hesitate in recommending them.
Absolutely 1st class service all the way, I was not disappointed at any stage of the process in transferring over for the annuity.
The company and staff were very helpful and got me a higher amount for my annuity than the other companies I had contacted .
All went nice and smooth and I am very happy to have dealt with Happy 2 retire
I,m very happy with the service that Happy2retire is providing from day 1 they have been true to there word made me the best offer for my needs and paid me on time, I would recommend them to anyone.

I WAS SCEPTICAL AT FIRST THAT THEY COULD GIVE ME SUCH AN IMPROVED OFFER TO MY ORIGINAL PENSION PROVIDER SO I CARRIED OUT CHECKS TO ENSURE EVERYTHING WAS LEGITIMATE.THE AGENT ALLOCATED TO ME WAS VERY HELPFUL AND EVERYTHING SHE TOLD ME HAPPENED. THE PROCESS WAS QUICK & WHILST THERE WERE A LOAD OF FORMS TO COMPLETE SHE HELPED WITH EVERYTHING & ANSWERED ALL MY QUERIES. lUMP SUM ALREADY PAID AND PENSION IS WELL IN EXCESS OF WHAT I WOULD HAVE RECEIVED HAD I STAYED WITH ORIGINAL PROVEDED. I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE SERVICE AND WOULD RECEOMMEND TO FRIENDS
From start to finish the service was excellent. My queries and questions always answer quickly. Paperwork detailed and where necessary input from me required, places where highlighted. They found me a deal which I believe to better than expected. Would recommend to all.
From first contact on the web to the last, excellent service.
Gareth who I initially dealt with was first class, friendly and very helpfull.
Every time he said he would call he did, everything went smoothly.
Thank you Mick Osborne.
Looking for a good annuity rate these days is a minefield, but Happy2 Retire took strain. They found me a great rate and had it all done and dusted within 3 weeks. The team were clear in their information, very organised and efficient and most of all, were friendly and helpful. I put my trust in them and they didn't fail me. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
Gareth was very helpful and negotiated a good pension deal on my behalf. I would recommend Happy2retire to anyone looking to purchase an annuity. My birth certificate and other documents were returned to me bet quickly and by special delivery. Overall I am delighted.
From my first phone call I considered that Happy 2 Retire was the company I wanted to handle my annuity,.above other companies I had tried. For being so proffesional from the start.
I was unsure what to do when the time came, so contacted these guys. They immediately spent quality time sorting out the paper work and explaining the options. I had a difficult case that they persevered with and eventually together we solved the issues. The staff were cheerful and always kept me informed as to what was happening.
