Choosing when you retire and how you access your pension

You have a number of options when it comes to accessing your pension. From the age you retire to the type of retirement income you want; what's important is that your pension works for you and your retirement plans.

Getting support when you decide

There are a number of resources available to you to help you make the right retirement choices.

  • You can seek financial advice before making a decision. Advice can help you look at your financial goals and create a plan that's suited to your needs. If you don't have a financial adviser, you can visit MoneyHelper to find the right one for you. 
  • 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.
  • We can help too, with tools and information available through Your Retirement Planner. This is only guidance and we'd recommend that you seek financial advice if you're unsure about your options. There may be a charge for this.
  • We also offer a free, UK-based guidance service, Aegon Assist. Our trained specialists can help guide you through your available options. We don’t give you advice but we will give you information to make your own decisions.
