    SIPP withdrawal/drawdown

    SIPP withdrawal/drawdown 7th Sep 17 at 12:27 PM
    Is withdrawing money from your SIPP after 55 the same thing as "drawdown"?

    It seems various platforms charge various fees (HL nothing, Fidelity nothing) for "drawdown" out of your pension plan.

    Bestinvest quote a fee of £25 for "Ad hoc income payments". So does this mean I would be charged £25 each time I withdraw any money?

    You mean UFPLS? Any decent platform offers that, eg see http://www.hl.co.uk/pensions/drawdown/what-are-the-alternatives

    It seems strange to me that any platform where you can invest in a SIPP, is not able to allow clients to withdraw their money when necessary. I'm also surprised that anyone knowing this would invest in a SIPP with such a platform.

    Lots of people have pensions which don't allow drawdown or the new freedoms, my works pension is one - it's not an issue till you reach the age at which you take money out, ie 55 currently. Then you can just transfer to a platform which does allow you to do what you want.
