More about SIPPs Open a SIPP
Available on transfers
Terms apply.

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 please seek advice.

Why invest in a SIPP?

A Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP), like other pensions 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.

You can control how much goes in, and when it goes in - all from your easy-to-manage online account.

What is a SIPP?

3. The Offer will be available between 6 April 2022 and 30 June 2022 inclusive (the “Offer Period”). If we receive your qualifying application within the Offer Period, even if the transfer itself isn’t completed until after the Offer closes, you will still qualify.
