We have been trying to transfer my husbands superannuation from UK to Australia since March (4 months ago) and are still waiting. Every time we call we have a different person dealing with it. Their information and instructions vary from person to person and we have been constantly misinformed. Zurich accept this and have made two compensation payments to date.

My employer's pension scheme was with Zurich, so by choosing it I benefitted by my employer making contributions to my scheme. Or so I thought, actually Zurich benefitted, as for every pound put into the scheme, they pocketed 65 pence.
