Almost two thirds of Britons surveyed (62%) that had received recent financial advice said they had detailed knowledge of Pension Freedoms, compared to a third (33%) of over-55s that had never received financial advice. 

A record 1m more people will reach the Pension Freedom age of 55 his year and this ‘peak’ will last for several years, according to new analysis.

It will be no surprise to those of you that know me, or at least read some of my blogs last autumn, that I’m not the biggest fan of default investment pathways, especially when it comes to SIPPs, and most definitely when advisers are involved.

A new survey for online platform and SIPP provider AJ Bell on the 5th anniversary of the Pension Freedoms suggests withdrawals have been falling year on year.

We all know that annuity sales have been in decline for some time with the rise in popularity of drawdown under the Pension Freedoms and the poor value they are perceived to offer.

Pension savers who were overtaxed on Pension Freedom withdrawals have been repaid £535mm by HMRC since 2015. 
New figures published today by HMRC show that a total of £30bn has been withdrawn ‘flexibly’ from pensions, taking advantage of the new ‘pension freedoms’ introduced in 2015. 

AJ Bell has launched a retirement income solution to help financial advisers manage clients taking income in retirement. 

Savers withdrew £2.75billion flexibly using the pension freedoms in Q2 2019, up 21% compared to a year earlier, new figures have revealed.
Worried retirees have revealed their fears as the fourth anniversary of pension freedoms approaches.
