Accessing you Pension – So, what are your options?

If you are 55 or over and have a defined contribution (money purchase) pension plan, you can: Leave your pension pot invested Buy a guaranteed income for life  Take a flexible income from your pension pot Take a cash lump sum from your pension pot Combine one or more of the options above. You can take cash and/or income at different times to suit your needs. You may be able to access your pot earlier than age 55 if you're unable to continue working because of ill health.
