Mr McIver

Now retired I spend a lot of my time in Greece enjoying the climate, culture and food. I decided to purchase an annuity because I wanted the security it offered. By confirming details about my height, weight and alcohol intake Hargreaves Lansdown were able to get me an enhanced annuity quote offering nearly £900 more income than that offered by some of the other providers.

Mr McIver, Devon

Mrs Reeves

Hargreaves Lansdown were brilliant in setting up my annuity. They did all the legwork for me by shopping around and finding me the highest income available from my pension. Everything was finalised within three weeks of first enquiring. I particularly liked that whenever I rang I spoke to someone straight away who was able to help.

Mrs Reeves, Wiltshire

Mr Franklin

I read about HL in the paper and I used the online tool to get some annuity quotes. The figures were thousands of pounds better than my pension provider's even though they were from the same insurance companies! Whenever I phoned the HL helpdesk I found it to be helpful and they always called back when they said they would.

Mr Franklin, Middlesex

Mr Coe

I just wanted to say thank you for the enhanced RPI protected annuity quote received today. Thanks to you making it so easy I am going to receive an annual sum £2,500 greater than the lowest standard quote, and this is entirely down to your team. I remain hugely impressed with the service you provide.

Mr Coe, Stockton-on-Tees

If you decide to use our non-advisory service then you will be taking responsibility for your annuity purchase, so please ensure you are happy to make your own investment decisions, including whether an annuity is right for you at this time. You should carefully consider your overall financial circumstances and other retirement goals or plans when making your decision.

Before applying for your annuity, check the rate offered by your existing provider to make sure you are better off and won’t lose any guarantees (such as guaranteed annuity rates) by shopping around.
