Do I have to take tax-free cash from my pension?

You don’t have to take any tax-free cash – instead you can use your whole pension for your annuity. This means you’ll get a higher income, but this will be subject to income tax.

If you decide not to take tax-free cash, you can’t take it at a later date.
