Income Drawdown, Phased Retirement and Tax-Free Cash


As an alternative to purchasing an annuity at retirement it is now possible to take an income directly from a pension fund.

  Keeley & Co - Income Drawdown, Phased Retirement and Tax-Free Cash
    

This has the particular advantage that the pension funds remains invested. This gives flexibility to take different levels of income as a client's circumstances change.

Income drawdown is particularly important to those who do not wish to buy an annuity for example, clients:

in poor health
with spouses in poor health
with a substantially younger spouse
who wish to optimise their Inheritance Tax planning
who have other temporary income such as consultancy earnings

Tax free cash

Proposed legislation due to come into force in April 2006 will enable the maximum tax free cash to be taken from a pension scheme without commitment to take any significant income. This is of major benefit to those who want to access up to 25% of their pension fund for a capital project whilst still working. This issue is complex and needs individual consultation.
