Annuity V ARF

Retirement Options

If you have a Defined Contribution Pension, then rising interest rates could certainly make an annuity more attractive, but it should be remembered that annuities end on the death of the annuitant, unless a spouse’s pension (up to 50%) or a guaranteed period (up to 10 years) is built in at set up.

Adding a spouse’s pension, guaranteed period, and or inflation protection lowers the original pension payment (annuity). That said, if you want zero risk, with a fixed income an Annuity could best suit those who are risk adverse.

The other option after taking your tax-free lump sum is to invest in an ARF, which carries a level of investment risk, but can be managed as a long-term asset, whilst still providing an income.

If you choose to go the annuity route, we can research the market to ensure your get value for money, meaning the highest possible regular pension payment in return for your pension pot (post tax-free lump sum).
