Flexible Retirement Plan (with SIPP options)
Your Flexible Retirement Plan is designed to help you save towards your retirement in a tax-efficient* way.
It offers a range of retirement and investment planning solutions for your changing needs, including a SIPP (self-invested personal pension) option for more control over your investments.
The Flexible Retirement Plan closed to new customers on 17 September 2018 but if you're an existing customer you're still able to make changes to your plan.
What you might be looking to do:
- Change the funds your plan's invested in.
- Stop paying money into your plan.
- Move your money to a different plan.
- Take the money you've saved in your plan.
If you’re considering any of these, please look at the links at the bottom of this page.
Read more about the features of your Flexible Retirement Plan
- Possible range of funds - your pension contributions might be invested in a choice of funds. The funds you can choose from might vary depending on what funds are actually available at the time. Please be aware, the value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
- Tax relief* - for every £80 you invest in your pension, the government will pay an extra £20. If you earn above the basic rate of tax, you can claim additional tax relief through your tax self-assessment form. Read more about the tax benefits of saving in a pension. Please be aware, the value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
- SIPP options - if you invest in our SIPP options (self-invested personal pension) you have an even greater choice of investments through our SIPP fund range. You can choose from a large number of funds available through the Cofunds supermarket with our lower cost FundSIPP (up to 20 funds) or the full range of investments through the Full SIPP. The SIPP option can be switched on or off at any time so you pay only for what you use. Please be aware, the value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
- Flexible income or cash (also know as drawdown) - this allows you to draw an income direct from your pension fund until you're ready to buy your pension annuity. Read more about the Income Drawdown option.
Please be aware, the value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in. If you take more money from the plan than the amount your investment has grown by, the value of your investment will be less than you’ve put in.

If you're thinking of making changes to your plan, including adding 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.
