Staying invested in retirement

Leaving your pension invested when you reach retirement

With investment, your capital is at risk.

Many people choose to stay invested at retirement if they have income from a part-time job, an annuity or income drawdown from another pension. If your investments perform well this could mean you have more money to spend in later life (but if they perform badly you could end up with less).

The decision to access your pension is an important one and will affect your income and possibly your standard of living for years to come. Therefore we recommend that before any decision is made you receive regulated financial advice or get free guidance from Pension Wise.

*The minimum charge for a SIPP is £120 per year.

** Subject to terms and conditions. Before you consider transferring a pension, it is important to ask yourself: Will I lose any valuable benefits or features from my existing pension plan? Will I incur any penalties on my existing pension if I transfer? Is it an occupational final salary pension scheme? (in which case it is very unlikely to be advisable to transfer) Have I considered the charges on my current plan? (a new arrangement may be more expensive – especially if you have a stakeholder pension).

SIPPs are not suitable for everyone. If you don’t want to invest across different asset classes or don’t think you will make use of the investment choices that SIPPs give you then a SIPP might not be right for you. Please contact us for guidance or advice if you are unsure whether a SIPP is right for you.
