Important information - What you do with your pension is an important decision. You should check you're making the right decision for your circumstances and that you understand all your options and their risks. The government's free and impartial Pension Wise service can help you and we can offer you advice if you’d like it. Tax benefits can change and depend on your circumstances. Investments can fall as well as rise in value, so you could get back less than you put in.
