Can I access my pension pot tax free if I’m a non-taxpayer?

You have the option to take usually 25% of the pension pot as tax-free cash. The remainder is added to the rest of your taxable income in the tax year in which you take it when determining any income tax liability. We deduct tax at basic rate and if there is an overpayment in tax, you can claim this back from HM Revenue & Customs.
