Flexible Investment Plan
Your Flexible Investment Plan is designed so that you can invest in a range of funds to suit your investment goals and attitude to risk.
You can take out up to 5% of your investment each year from your plan for up to 20 years - free from any immediate income tax liability.
What you may be looking to do:
- Take a lump sum from your plan.
- Make regular cash withdrawals.
- Change the funds your plan's invested in.
If you’re considering any of these, please look at the links at the bottom of this page.
Remember, if you're thinking of making changes to your plan, or paying in more money, it's really important you speak to a financial adviser. They can help you understand if what you want to do is right for you and your aims and circumstances, that may have changed since you took your plan out. They'll be responsible for the advice they give and you'll also have protection from the Financial Ombudsman Service.
Regardless of whether you’ve taken advice, you can refer any matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service for consideration should you feel that you haven't been treated fairly, or for any other aspect under the Financial Ombudsman Services remit.
To let your money work even harder for you to potentially achieve your investment goals, you might think about topping-up your plan.
We've made it easy too, just call us on 0345 640 1000* or send us a secure email and we'll send you a top-up application form and Key Features. Please read the Key Features before topping up as they provide you with important information on the key risks and benefits of the product to help you make a decision.
This product is designed for the medium to long term, which means 5 to 10 years. The minimum top up amount for this product is £5,000. The maximum investment is £500,000. This maximum includes any top-ups. Charges do apply.
If you are unsure of the suitability of the product please speak to a financial adviser.

- All other switches out of any of the PruFund Funds will be made 28 days after we receive the request and using the unit prices on the 28th day. Switch requests at the end of the guarantee date are not subject to the 28 day delay. For further details please go to the Key Features Document.
- Your bond has a valuable tax benefit. You can take out up to 5% of each of your investments each policy year from your plan for up to 20 years - free from any immediate income tax liability. If you take out more than 5% of the amount you first invested in any twelve month period, you might have to pay tax. You might need to pay tax depending on your circumstances and the options you choose. Tax rules can also change in the future.
The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
PruFund Range of Funds
The PruFund range of funds are only available if your plan started on or after 25/4/2005. Please note that you cannot top-up into a PruFund Protected Fund.
Our dedicated page on the PruFund range of funds gives you information including how our smoothing process works, access to both historic and current Expected Growth Rates (EGRs) and details of any historic Unit Price Adjustments (UPA).
