Further guidance

The Money Advice Service, an independent body set up by the Government to provide free, impartial advice, provides further information about the key features of these options which may assist in deciding which option is best for you. The Money Advice Service booklet ‘Your pension: it’s time to choose’ is available on their website, www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/articles/free-printed-guides#pensions-and-retirement

Guidance is also available from 'Pensions Wise', a Government service which offers free and impartial guidance about the options. This guidance may be accessed on the internet at www.pensionswise.gov.uk, or by telephone on 0300 330 1001 (from outside the UK: +44 20 3733 3495). You can also book a face-to-face appointment with an adviser by calling this number. We recommend that you take advantage of this offer of free and impartial guidance, and also consider taking independent advice to help you decide which option is most suitable
