This January, Rachel Riley and Standard Life will be taking over three pubs – in London, Birmingham and Edinburgh – to host a pub quiz and get people talking about pensions in the New Year.

The reforms in April 2015 are going to provide a cocktail of choice. And whether it’s a partially pension funded ‘5-star gap year’ or a kit car you’re after, one things for sure, a good understanding of the new pension flexibility rules is going to prove paramount in helping you blend a retirement mix that suits you best.

*All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from Springboard UK panellists. Total sample size for the survey was 1,500 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 19th – 21st November 2014. The surveys were carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all GB working adults (aged 50 – 65).

Remember, pensions are a long-term commitment and the value of any money you keep invested can fall as well as rise and could be worth less than you’ve paid in. Normally 25% of your withdrawals are tax-free and you may have to pay tax on the rest. Tax rules can change – so stay up to date.
