making cash contributions
The quickest and easiest way to make personal contributions is via your online account. No contribution form is required for the following:
- debit card (one-off): log in and select 'add cash' from the 'cash & transfers' menu.
- direct debit (regular, monthly): log in and select 'regular investments' from the 'trading' menu.
- internal transfer (one-off and regular, monthly): log in and select 'withdraw/transfer cash' from the 'cash & transfers' menu
To make a personal contribution by bank transfer and arrange contributions from your employer or another person, complete an ii SIPP Contribution Form.
transferring existing pensions
Having opened your ii SIPP, complete a SIPP Transfer In Form when you want to bring other pensions together in your account.
- For transfers of pensions with defined or safeguard benefits of £30,000 or more (such as a 'final salary' pension) you will also need to take independent advice that confirms the transfer is in your best interests and you and your adviser will need to complete a SIPP Financial Advice Declaration Form. Where the transferring value is less than £30,000 we will normally accept it without advice where the value represents no more than 10% of the value of your SIPP.
- If you are considering transferring an overseas pension to your ii SIPP, please contact us with details beforehand and we will confirm whether or not we can accept it.
