I’ve a protected pension commencement lump sum (PCLS) which means I can take more than 25% of my pot as tax-free cash. What happens if I take this as a flexible lump sum?

 

If you use your savings for a flexible lump sum payment (UFPLS) with us:

  • You’d lose this higher entitlement as the maximum PCLS (tax-free cash) amount for a flexible lump sum payment is 25%.

 

If you use your savings for flexi-access drawdown with us:

  • You’d keep your higher tax-free cash entitlement of more than 25% of your pot.

 

This is a complex subject and we recommend that you discuss your situation with a financial adviser.
