We want to help you feel confident when it comes to making the right decisions about your pension so we hope you found your recent call with us useful.

Below you’ll find more information on the options we discussed and where to find further support.

Your options to consider

1. How to take money from your pension

Take a look and think about which one may be right for you:

bank notes

Take your pension flexibly (240KB)
Access your pension flexibly through one-off or multiple lump sums or a regular income

lock

Take a guaranteed income (265KB)
This means setting up an annuity, providing a regular income for life

coins

Take all your pension money in one go (125KB)
A lump sum with part of it being tax-free

Our retirement calculator can also help you understand and explore your options.

2. Bringing your pensions together

If you have more than one pension, you may find it helpful to bring them together so you can manage everything in one place. This may not be right for everyone but if you think this might be right for you, read our Transfer my Pension guide for more information.

3. Further support to help you plan
