Self-Invested Personal Pension
Your Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) allows you access to a choice of investments when it comes to saving for your retirement. Prudential's SIPP is available through the Self Invested Fund option on the Flexible Retirement Plan.
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.
- Change the amount of money you pay into your plan.
- Stop paying money into your plan.
- Move your money to a different plan.
- Take the money you've saved from your plan.
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 more money into a pension, 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.
Read about the features of your Self-Invested Personal Pension
- You can make flexible payments - once you've started your SIPP with a minimum £10,000 payment, you (or your employer) can make further contributions as and when you wish, so long as they are a minimum of £200. Note that any changes to your contributions will impact on your benefits at retirement.
- Flexible charging structure - you pay depending on the range of funds you want to access. Bear in mind charges may vary in future.
- Possible range of funds - your pension contributions may be invested in a choice of funds. The funds you can choose from may vary depending on what funds are actually available at the time. Note the value of your investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back what you put in. Read our FRP Fund Guide for more information on the funds offered under the plan.
- Tax relief* - for every £80 you invest in your pension, the government will pay a further £20. If you earn above the basic rate of tax, you can claim additional tax relief through your tax self-assessment form.
- Flexible income or cash (also known as drawdown) - this allows you to draw an income direct from your pension fund until you are ready to buy your pension annuity.
