Is It Right For Me?

IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE READ BELOW:
Selling your pension, choosing pension release, cashing in, or unlocking your pension will almost certainly mean you’ll have less income in retirement. Because of the reduced level of future income, pension unlocking is usually only suitable for a very limited number of people and circumstances.
Therefore it is imperative that all other options are investigated fully, before you consider unlocking your pension.
Many people seek to unlock their pensions because of financial pressures, but other avenues that can be explored include:
1. Talking to your creditors
2. Consolidation loans/cheaper credit
3. Debt counselling
4. Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA)
6. Raising other funds
Sellpension.co.uk offers a free service whereby we will introduce you to a pension review expert. The adviser will speak to you about your pension, but it is your responsibility to consider the implications if this is something you would like to do.
Think very carefully! For further information, read our code of practice page.
