The cost for our SIPP depends on the level of investments you choose as well as how much you decide to pay in.
To open a Standard Life SIPP you need to make the minimum payments either on a monthly or yearly basis:
|How much you have in your SIPP||How much you need to pay in as a minimum|
£240 a month or £2400 a year, which is topped up with basic rate tax relief.
For example, £2400 becomes £3000 with basic rate tax relief added.
£80 a month or £800 a year, which is topped up with basic rate tax relief.
For example, £800 becomes £1000 with basic rate tax relief added.
You can also set up a SIPP with us by making a one-off payment of £8,000 (which is then topped up with basic tax relief to £10,000). Keep in mind that any payments you make into a SIPP will benefit from tax relief which will bump up the amount of money that’s actually paid into your pension plan.
If you are an additional or higher-rate taxpayer then you may be able to claim for additional tax relief.
Depending on where your money is invested we may pay money into your plan as a discount to the fund charges. This is done by adding extra units to your fund(s) each month.
|How much money you have in your SIPP||Yearly discount rate (doesn’t apply to all investments)|
|Under £250,000||0.3 %|
|£250,000 - £499,999||0.4 %|
|£500,000 +||0.5 %|
