Yes, when you take out your annuity you have a legal right to cancel your contract within 30 days if you change your mind. The 30-day period starts from the date you receive the annuity terms and conditions. If you had a Standard Life pension, bought an annuity from us, and you now want to cancel or still have some questions, please contact us.

Once the 30 days have passed you won't be able to cancel the annuity or change any of the options you've chosen.

It's important to consider each of the options when you buy an annuity. Once it's set up you can't make changes to it, cash it in or transfer it to another provider.
