Pension reforms to help investors

Pension reforms to help investors

From 6 April 2015, there is a major shake-up in the UK's pensions market, meaning that pensions . and the way people can access them . are changing.

There will be flexible access to pensions from age 55 meaning that they will have freedom over how they take an income or a lump sum from their pension.

Changes also mean that the 'death tax' will be abolished meaning that a pension can be passed to a relative as a tax free sum.

Also some pensioners will also be able to make unlimited withdrawals if the have a final salary pension.

All these changes mean that it will be easier and more effective to use the cash in your pension for investing, especially in property!
