From pensions to your property, there's a lot to consider when looking at how to fund your retirement. And because there's so much choice, it's important that you take time to decide what's right for you.
Using your pension
When it comes to accessing your pension savings you can:
- Take a cash lump sum
- Get flexible access to your savings
- Buy a secure income
- Leave your money invested until you decide to take it.
Whatever you decide to do, you can usually take up to 25% of your pension savings completely tax free.
Using your property
There are more options than ever when it comes to using property as part of your retirement plan, including:
- Equity release
- Retirement Interest-Only Mortgage (RIO)
- Traditional mortgage.
Our Later Life Lending service, provided by Responsible Life, is designed to help you explore these options and find the one that's right for you.
