This is a question posted by many visitors to our website, so here is the answer : No, there are ways of just taking the Tax Free Cash now and taking your income later.
This may appear to be a different answer to the one provided by your current pension provider, so let us explain further. There is no legal barrier or rule that prevents the holder of a personal pension from just taking a Pension Lump Sum and taking their income later. However the problem may be that the particular contract that you hold, means that if you do ask to take the lump sum, the contract terms means that an income also has to be taken. but don't panic !! . . . there are equally legal ways around this.
For many people taking a pension income before retirement may be a poor decision financially. However being able to take the Tax Free Lump Sum early, could make a real difference to their lifestyle or financial situation. We help many people release their Tax Free Cash only while leaving the rest of their pension invested for retirement.
If you pension provider is insisting that you take an income as well as your lump sum, then we can provide you with an alternative pension contract that will enable you to just take the 25 percent lump sum now and leave the rest until later. The remaining 75 percent stays invested until you want to buy an annuity or even take income directly from the fund. We work with you all the while your fund is invested to ensure that your investment is managed in line with your appetite for risk.
