How to add money to a SIPP

Adding money to your SIPP is quickest online. Here's how you can do it.

Before you start

  • You cannot usually access money in a SIPP until age 55 (57 from 2028). Make sure you are comfortable with this and have read the SIPP Key Features, before you add money.  
  • The debit card you use should be in the same name as the HL account holder, and registered to your home address.  
  • If you are looking to add money to your SIPP on behalf of your employer, please complete an employer contribution form.
  • If you would like to add a regular amount of money each month, you can set up a Direct Debit.
