The TD SIPP gives you flexibility to decide how and when (from age 55) you want to start drawing your retirement benefits. When considering your options you should first consider whether you need the security of income provided by an annuity. If this is not your main priority, then you could consider Income Drawdown.
With income drawdown you can:
- Take a tax-free lump sum at retirement
- Choose the level of income you want to take from your pension
- Continue to keep your pension fund invested during retirement
- Take a combination of tax-free cash and income as a one-off payment
If you are considering taking Income Drawdown rather than purchasing an annuity at retirement it is important that you understand the benefits and risks of Income Drawdown.

You need to consider the investment returns that you may be able to achieve and the level of income that you wish to take.

The TD SIPP is aimed at investors who have sufficient knowledge and experience of investing to make their own decisions and want to actively manage their investments. The TD SIPP is not suitable for every investor. Other types of pensions may be more appropriate.
The investments made within a TD 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 (57 from 2028).
Before you decide if opening or transferring an existing pension plan(s) is right for you, we recommend that you seek the advice of a suitably qualified financial adviser.
