Moving your pension into drawdown

Get expert financial advice on moving your pension into drawdown

An expert can help you answer questions such as:

  • Is drawdown the right option for me?
  • How much income do I need and want?
  • How will my income be affected if the market drops?
  • Should I take all my tax free cash as a lump sum?
  • How long will I need my money to last?
  • Are my affairs tax efficient?

Deciding how you’ll generate income in retirement is one of the most important decisions you’ll make.

Drawdown is a popular option because it’s both flexible in life and in terms of passing it on to loved ones. But unlike something like an annuity, your income from drawdown isn’t guaranteed and may not be consistent.

If you’re considering drawdown, there can be a lot to think about.
