Taking money out when the time is right

This feature is only for UK residents aged 55 (57 from 6 April 2028) and older

  • Receive guidance on the wider areas you should consider before you take money out of your pension pot
  • We’ll let you know how accessing your pension pot could impact your circumstances and wider finances now and in the future
