As legislation stands, you cannot take anything out of your pensions until the age of 55. The only exceptions being if you are in serious ill-health, or if your pension is related to certain occupations, such as sportsmen.

However, retiring doesn’t necessarily mean taking an income and/or lump sum from your pensions.  It is entirely possible to generate a tax-efficient income from your other savings, even whilst mitigating investment risk.

For pension assets, you may wish to consider purchasing an Annuity or going into an Income Drawdown arrangement.  You may however be better off leaving your pensions uncrystallised until you are older and can benefit from a higher level of income.

For non-pension assets, there are various ways of taking an income in a tax-efficient manner, whilst still maintaining the capital.  You may even wish to consider releasing equity from a property.

Retirement planning, pensions and investments are highly complex areas of financial planning.  Bankfield’s experienced advisers are highly qualified in pensions, investments, trusts and taxation to ensure you receive the very best and most up to date service.
