    Maturing Endowment? 16th May 18 at 2:09 PM
    Afternoon All,
    Finally our 25 year endowment is maturing! Question is what am I allowed to do with those funds? Can I just spend it (that would be liable tax?) or does it need to go towards mortgage?

    Thanks Chris

    Is it linked to your mortgage?

    If it isn't assigned to a mortgage as collateral security, you can do what you like with it.

    Taxation status is not determined by the use of the proceeds.

    You may need confirmation from your current mortgage provider that it isn't assigned to your mortgage.

    If it isn't its a tax free lump sum to do with as you please.
