When saving for retirement it is important to know how you can access your Personal Pension Plan at your chosen retirement age. With a Personal Pension Plan you can do the following:
• Take up to 25% of your fund as a tax free lump sum (subject to a maximum of €200,000).
• Use the balance of your fund to:
A. Purchase an Annuity
B. Invest in an ARF (Approved Retirement Fund) / AMRF (Approved Minimum Retirement Fund)
• Take a taxable lump sum
Note: An Annuity is an income that is guaranteed for your life.
An ARF/AMRF is an investment that allows you to continue to invest in the markets and take a flexible income from the fund.
