We can help you drawdown your UK private pension.

Pension Drawdown Information

What is Income Drawdown?

Pension Drawdown, also known as Income Drawdown is a way of accessing your private pension(s) while keeping the balance of your funds invested. Drawdown is a more flexible way of taking an income or a one-off tax-free lump sum from your pension pots.

What is Flexi-access drawdown?

Flexi-access drawdown allows you to take unlimited, but taxable withdrawals from your pension. It is combined with the option to pass funds on after death which makes flexi-access drawdown an appealing option when taking pension benefits from a money purchase arrangement.

Could Pension Drawdown
be right for you?

There could be many benefits of drawdown for you and your pension.

25% Tax-free lump sum – if you’re 55 years or older, you could take a tax-free lump sum from your pension. For example the lump-sum could be used to pay off your mortgage or other debts while you’re still employed and keep the rest of your pension invested.

Investment growth – even after you have retired by using pension drawdown, your pension investments could continue to grow unlike if you purchase an annuity.

More flexibility – with flexible drawdown, you can take money out of your pension when you need it, leaving the rest invested.
