The information on our website is not personal advice but we can offer advice if specifically requested. What you do with your pension is an important decision, which could be irreversible. Make sure you understand your options and check they are suitable for your circumstances: take appropriate advice or guidance if you are unsure. Once held in a pension your money is not usually accessible until age 55 (57 from 2028). The Government's free Pension Wise service can help.
