How Well Do You Understand Pension Freedoms?


In April 2015, the Treasury introduced new rules that gave over-55s greater access to their personal pension savings. However, according to recent reports, almost half of 50 to 75-year olds have little knowledge about how these pension freedoms work, whilst a similar percentage are concerned about the size of their pension pots.

Pension freedoms could give pensioners unlimited access to their pension funds but what seems like a great opportunity on the face of it, could potentially pose enormous financial risks.

At D&G Independent Limited, we advise everyone, regardless of age or life stage, to access professional and regulated advice about retirement planning. Understanding how you can optimise your pension savings as well as getting to grips with the Government’s reforms could transform your lifestyle when you reach your retirement years.

As pension specialists, we offer impartial advice on personal pensions, self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs), stakeholder pensions, flexible drawdowns, enhanced annuities and much more. If you wish to discuss your plans for retirement with an authorised, independent financial adviser, please call 01352 754272 or email to arrange a free, no obligation initial consultation.
