Have you flexibly accessed your pension? 

You could be due on average £3,000

Over £620 million has been refunded to savers hit when flexibly accessing their pension. Average Pension Tax Refund £3,000. 



Pension freedoms were introduced in April 2015. Under this dramatic reform, individuals aged 55 and over were given far greater freedom over how to access their pension pots.

Rather than being required to purchase an annuity, savers are now able to withdraw from their pension pot flexibly. This ranges from withdrawing the entirety or part of your pension pot as a cash lump sum, to flexi-access drawdown or purchasing an annuity.

Taxation on pension withdrawals:

Giving savers the freedom to choose how to use their hard earned pension pot is fantastic, however the method HMRC taxes these flexible withdrawals frequently results in large overpayments of tax. Many savers are unaware they have even been overtaxed or that they are entitled to reclaim this money.

Official UK Government figures reveal:

  • Over £620 million has been reclaimed since Pension Freedoms were introduced (2015)
  • Over £290 million was reclaimed in 2019 and 2020 alone.
  • Average refund over £3000 (January-December 2020)
