Pension freedom – you will have more choice than ever before
How will you choose what to do with the money in your pension pot?
Following the introduction of pension freedom, if you are aged 55 years or over, you will no longer need to buy an annuity to access your retirement cash.
Typically most people approaching retirement bought a pension annuity, which provided a guaranteed income in retirement. But once purchased, it meant you couldn’t change your mind.
However, pension freedom allows you to choose how you access the money you have saved in your pension pot. The most common types of pensions affected include:
- personal pensions;
- group personal pensions (GPPs);
- self invested personal pensions (SIPPs);
- additional voluntary contribution schemes; and
- defined benefit occupational schemes.
