Minimum pension age increases to 57

Currently, you are able to take some or all of the cash held in your private pension pots at age 55, this includes taking 25% of the pot value tax free.

In a statement to Parliament John Glen, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, announced that the minimum pension age would be increased to 57 from 2028, reflecting trends in longevity and encouraging individuals to remain in work, while also helping to ensure pension savings provide for later life.

This change will affect those aged 47 and below, meaning they will have a further two years to wait to access their pension savings.
