Pension Income

Converting your Pension funds into retirement income

There are several ways of turning your Pension fund into a regular income for your retirement. The government sets rules about how you can do this. The usual way is to take a tax-free lump sum and then use the rest of the fund to buy a Lifetime Annuity from a Life Insurance company. This turns your Pension fund into a pension income for the rest of your life.

Currently, after deciding whether to take any tax-free lump sum, if you have a wife, husband or civil partner who depend on you, you will need to consider whether you want to buy a joint-life Annuity.

Using an Open-Market Option (OMO) is exercising your right to shop around and buy your Annuity from the company offering the best deal for you.

But if you decide you don’t want to buy a Lifetime Annuity straight away; one option is the new Flexible Drawdown option. It allows you to draw an income from your Pension fund while the fund remains invested.
