More about SIPPs Start a SIPP

Important information: SIPPs are a type of pension for people happy to make their own investment decisions. Investments go down in value as well as up so you could get back less than you invest. The rules mentioned are those currently applying and could change. You can normally only access the money from age 55 (57 from 2028). Tax reliefs depend on individual circumstances. Before transferring a pension please ensure you will not lose valuable guarantees or incur excessive transfer penalties. Pensions are usually transferred as cash so you will be out of the market for a period. This website is not personal advice, if you are unsure an investment is suitable for your circumstances please seek advice.

Why invest in a SIPP?

A SIPP is one of the most tax-efficient ways of saving for your retirement. Unlike traditional pensions where investment choice can be limited, a SIPP gives you the freedom to invest almost anywhere you like.

Not only that, you can control how much goes in, and when it goes in - all from your easy-to-manage online account.

Terms of the cashback offer – Autumn 2020 – SIPP, ISA and General Investment Account transfers only

1. Subject to these terms and conditions, if you transfer an existing pension, ISA or general investment account from another platform, you will receive a cash amount depending on the amount you transfer (the “Offer”). The Offer is funded by us and the cashback will not come from your own cash or investments.

2. The Offer will be available between 5 October 2020 and 10 January 2021 inclusive (the “Offer Period”).

3. If your transfer completes within the Offer Period, the cashback payment will be paid into your Loyalty Bonus Account no later than one month after the Offer has closed. If your transfer completes after the Offer has closed, the cashback payment will be paid into your Loyalty Bonus Account within one month of the date on which your last qualifying transfer completes, which will be determined by us. Your Loyalty Bonus Account is separate from your HL ISA, Fund and Share Account and SIPP. The cash can be kept in your Loyalty Bonus Account for fee collection, withdrawn or moved into whichever HL account you choose. If moved into an ISA or SIPP, it will count towards your annual allowance.

4. We ask you keep your HL account(s) for one year from the date of the transfer. Please feel free to switch between investments and in or out of cash within your account, but if you decide to transfer away or close your account within 12 months of the date your transfer completes, then we reserve the right to reclaim the cashback paid. If cash is to be reclaimed then you will be notified and the cash will be taken within 7 days of the account closure or transfer.
