SIPP: Self-Invested Personal Pension

Take control of your retirement planning with our award-winning, low cost SIPP.

Retire with more of your money.

Please remember, SIPPs are aimed at people happy to make their own investment decisions. Investment value can go up or down and you could get back less than you invest. You can normally only access the money from age 55 (57 from 2028). We recommend seeking advice from a suitably qualified financial advisor before making any decisions. Pension and tax rules depend on your circumstances and may change in future.

What is a SIPP?

A Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) puts you in control of your retirement planning. While a traditional pension may offer limited investment options, a SIPP gives you the freedom to make your own investment choices. 

Some people use a SIPP to combine old pensions into one. This can make it easier to keep track of your retirement savings.

As with other pensions, the government will give you tax relief on the amount you pay in. Learn more about SIPPs

SIPPs are popular with people who want more control over where their pension is invested than is typically available from more traditional pension schemes. You can consolidate old workplace pots into a SIPP and you can also ask your current employer to pay into one.

They can also make sense for self-employed people who want to pick their investments independently, or for people who want to invest their pension sustainably, because of the investment choices available.
