Changes to the Lifetime Allowance protection for pensions

The Lifetime Allowance is a limit on the amount of pension benefit that can be drawn from pension schemes - whether lump sums or retirement income - and can be paid without triggering an extra tax charge.

On 6 April 2016, the Lifetime Allowance is being reduced from £1.25 million to £1million.

In response to this change, new forms of fixed and individual protection will be available from HMRC at www.hmrc.gov.uk from July 2016.

The good news is that there are no application deadlines for the new protection, and HMRC is launching a new online application process.
