Your Retirement Panner will give you more information about taking a full lump sum to help you decide how to take your pension benefits. If you're a TargetPlan customer, myTarget will give you more information on your retirement options. If after reading this information you're still not sure, we strongly recommend you get guidance or advice before taking a full lump sum payment.

You can speak to Aegon Assist, our friendly, UK-based team of trained specialists on hand to provide you free guidance on your retirement options. While we can offer you guidance, we don't offer advice, you'll need to contact a financial adviser for that.

If you don't have an adviser, you can find one near you at MoneyHelper. There may be a charge for this.

Pension Wise, a service from MoneyHelper, is a free and impartial government service offering guidance about your retirement options. This service is available online at MoneyHelper by phone on 0800 138 3944 or face to face by appointment.
