Can I claim just the 25% tax-free lump sum up front and leave the rest invested?

If you want to take a tax-free sum but leave the remainder of your pension pot invested, you’ll need to designate your fund for flexi-access drawdown. If you choose to access your savings through flexi-access drawdown, you must take the 25% tax-free lump sum up front and leave the remainder invested. Every withdrawal you then make will be taxed as earned income at the highest rate you pay.
