More about Income Release

When employees reach retirement they can move their pensions savings to our income drawdown plan, Income Release - as long as they have at least £10,000 in their workplace pension plan.

With Income Release, employees can:

  • Choose when and how much money they want to take out of their plan. 
  • Phase when they want to receive their income.
  • Continue to make contributions into their plan, even after taking money out.
  • Choose to leave their pension savings for loved ones when they die.
