Income Drawdown Transfer
Welcome to the Income Drawdown Section!
When approaching retirement and thinking about income drawdown it is important to look at all the factors. Look into death benefits, flexible drawdown, new rules, comparisons with annuities, tax free cash, the best providers, and IHT.
If you take an annuity young (especially early retirement) income may be much lower than if you went into Drawdown and took the annuity older. There are also inheritance tax benefits to drawdown. As with all investment decisions you must balance risk and reward . Income from drawdown is at the mercy of fund performance. ID is normally only appropriate if you have £100K+ in your pension pot.
With an income drawdown plan, you are allowed to take an income in retirement until the time comes to buy a pension. To transfer from this defined contribution scheme, you must transfer your money to another income drawdown plan which will have the exact same review date and transfer limits as the old plan.
