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 that the value of your fund may fluctuate and you may not get back your original investment. 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. See our tax relief calculator for more or read about the tax benefits of saving in a pension. You are also allowed to take up to 25% of your fund as tax-free cash when you retire. Note that pensions in payment are taxed as earned income.
- Complete control - you'll have total say over your investments so long as they are within the range of assets allowed by the plan. You'll need to actively manage your SIPP, perhaps in conjunction with a financial adviser.
- Income drawdown option - this allows you to draw an income direct from your pension fund until you are ready to buy your pension annuity. Read more about the Drawdown option.
