This guide isn’t personal advice. What you decide to do with your pension is an important decision. Pension and tax rules can change, and any benefits will depend on your circumstances. All investments can rise and fall in value, so choosing drawdown means your income and pension value aren’t guaranteed. You could get back less than you invest. We strongly recommend you understand all your options and check that the option you choose is right for your circumstances. Take personal advice or seek guidance if you’re unsure.
