    We wrote this guide to give you useful information about pensions, but it's not personal advice. If you choose to invest, just remember that investments can go down as well as up in value, so you could get back less than you put in. You can’t normally access money in a pension until age 55 (57 from 2028). Pension and tax rules can change though, and their benefits depend on your circumstances.
