The investments made within a pension 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). Prior to making any decision about the suitability of a pension to meet your retirement needs, we recommend that you seek the advice of a suitably qualified financial adviser.
