Approaching retirement with a Prudential pension

Here you'll find important information you'll receive if you have a pension product with us.


We'll get in touch with you

If you have a pension with Prudential, you’ll start to receive information packs from us as you get close to your 50th birthday, then every 5 years after until you reach your Selected Retirement Date. These will be issued around 4-10 weeks before each age milestone.

You’ll also receive a pack just before your chosen retirement age, whenever you request a quote or anytime you choose to take money out of your pension.

Age 50

Receive covering letter

Age 55 (and every 5 years thereafter)

Receive first Options Pack

4 - 6 months before Selected Retirement Date

Receive second Options Pack

6 weeks before Selected Retirement Date

Receive reminder pack

Quote / Retirement Options Pack

(available on request from age 55)

Age 75

Receive retirement options letter and reminder

Just because you can access your savings from age 55, doesn’t mean you need to, but you should consider the options available to you and what suits your individual needs.

The age you can access your pension pot is to increase to age 57 from 2028, and will affect anyone aged 47 and under.

Important things to think about when considering your options
