Personal Pensions Release


Release Cash from your Personal Pension

How It Works More Information

Are you looking to use the new Pension Freedom & Choice Rules to access Tax Free Cash from your pension? These rules give you the freedom to access cash from your pension from age 55. You can take up to 25% of the value of your pension TAX FREE.

The rules also allow you to take out as much cash as you like. However, any cash taken over the Tax Free Cash amount will be subject to Income Tax!

Unfortunately, not all pension providers have a pension product that will allow you to release the tax free cash only and leave the remaining fund invested. Or you may have a pension with a Guaranteed Annuity Rate (GAR) and need to obtain financial advice to access the cash from your pension. In these cases, you will need to transfer your pension to a pension provider that has a pension product that will allow you to use the new Rules. We can recommend a pension provider, help you with the transfer process to ensure your cash is paid direct into your bank account.

Notes: Your fund value will need to be over £10,000. These rules do not apply if you are already taking an income from an annuity, or from the Basic State Pension.
