Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP)

Please remember - the value of investments made within a SIPP can fall as well as rise and you may end up with a fund at retirement that’s worth less than you invested. You can normally only access the money from age 55 (age 57 from 2028). The ii SIPP is aimed at clients who have sufficient knowledge and experience of investing to make their own investment decisions.

What is the ii SIPP?

A Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) is a type of pension that lets you choose how and where it is invested.

We make this easy for you with our Quick-start Funds - but more confident investors can choose from a wide range of funds and shares.

You can combine your other pensions into one SIPP for simpler retirement planning. And like all pensions, you'll get generous tax benefits every time you contribute.

What is a SIPP?

Benefits of our pension (SIPP)

  • Control - you can choose where your pension is invested, keep track of your pot, and make changes whenever you want.
  • Convenience - if you transfer your other pensions to our SIPP, you'll be able to see everything in one place, and pay just one monthly fee. Learn more
  • Low cost - we charge a low, flat fee. Most providers charge a percentage fee that grows with your pension. Learn more
  • Tax benefits - like all pensions, contributing to a SIPP provides a range of generous tax advantages. Learn more
  • Flexible retirement options - when you reach 55 (57 from 2028), we provide a range of options for taking an income from your pension. Unlike many other providers, there is no extra charge for this. Learn more
  • Security - your pension is safe with us. Your money is always kept separate from our own, and we are fully FSCS protected. Over 400,000 people trust us with their pensions and other investments.

How to get started

Opening a SIPP with ii couldn't be simpler.

1

Open an ii SIPP account

This should take less than 15 minutes. Make sure you have your bank details and your National Insurance number to hand.

2

Transfer existing pensions (optional)

You can transfer most types of pension to us. Keeping all your pensions in one place keeps things simple, and could reduce your costs.

You can start a transfer while opening your SIPP, or you can do it later by logging in to your account.

3

Choose your investments

Our low-cost Quick-start Funds are an ideal way to get started.

If you prefer, you can choose your own investments from a wide range of shares and funds.

Before starting a transfer you should:

  • Ensure that you won't lose any valuable benefits, such as guaranteed annuity rates or a lower protected pension age than the Normal Minimum Pension Age
  • Check what exit fees you might have to pay

The tax treatment of this product depends on your individual circumstances and may change in future .

If you are unsure about the suitability of a SIPP, or transferring any existing pension plan(s) into a SIPP, you should seek advice from an authorised financial advisor.
