    No you only have 1 shot of the 25%.
    The rest would be taxed at your marginal rate.

    yes and no.

    You can crystallise the whole pot in year one and only get one lot of pension commencement lump sum. Or you can crystallise a bit every year and get some pension commencement lump sum every year.
