That is according to a Freedom of Information Act reply obtained by Steve Webb, director of Policy at Royal London.
Royal London asked the Pensions Regulator to update previous estimates of the volume of DB transfers and the latest figure suggests that 210,000 transfers worth £34bn were reported to TPR in 2018/19.
Mr Webb said: “These figures show the continuing huge interest in using pension freedoms to access pension rights in a more flexible way.
“Although the volume of transfers has probably passed its peak, large numbers of people are still interested in seeing whether reshaping their pension benefits would be in their interests.
“It remains the case that staying in a DB scheme will be the right answer for most people, but there may be individual reasons why a different combination of pensions would give a better outcome.
“In such cases it is vital that there continues to be a supply of impartial and expert financial advice for those considering making such a big decision.”
