Fidelity SIPP

Retire the way you want to by investing in a simple to manage, tax-efficient personal pension.

A Fidelity Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) is a great way to start saving for retirement. It can also make a good home if you’re looking to bring together several pension pots, helping you take control of your retirement savings and plan ahead more effectively.

Ready to retire?

If you’re thinking about using our SIPP to take some tax-free cash or take a flexible income from your pension, our retirement specialists can help.

The value of investments can go down as well as up so you may not get back what you invest. Eligibility to invest in a SIPP or Junior SIPP depends on personal circumstances and all tax rules may change in the future.

You cannot normally access money in a SIPP until age 55. It’s important to understand that pension transfers are a complex area and may not be suitable for everyone. Before going ahead with a pension transfer, we strongly recommend that you undertake a full comparison of the benefits, charges and features offered. To find out what else you should consider before transferring, please read our transfer factsheet. If you are in any doubt whether or not a pension transfer is suitable for your circumstances we strongly suggest that you seek advice from an authorised financial adviser.

SIPP FAQs

What is a SIPP?

A SIPP or Self-Invested Personal Pension is a tax-efficient way to start saving for your own retirement. For more details see our 'What is a SIPP?' video below.

Find out more about your pension allowances.

Can I have a SIPP and a company pension?

Yes, you can hold a SIPP together with a company pension with us or another pension provider.

What happens to my SIPP when I reach age 75?

If you reach age 75 with money still in a pension pot, your pension will usually remain invested, with any income payments continuing to be made in the same way. However, at age 75, the pension provider will carry out a check against your lifetime allowance, which they will contact you in relation to. If when that test is carried out, the value of your pensions is deemed to be above your lifetime allowance, you may face tax charges of up to 55% on the excess amount.

For more information, you can speak to Pension Wise, HMRC or a financial adviser to understand the amount of tax you will pay.

What can a SIPP invest in?

A SIPP can invest in a wide range of funds, investments trusts and exchange traded funds that you can choose. Different SIPPs have access to different investments. If you are unsure where to invest, speak to an authorised financial adviser. Find out more about your investing options.

So what are self-invested personal pensions? Self-invested personal pensions or SIPPs are designed for people who want to take control over how their pension savings are invested. The investments in your SIPP will grow free of income tax and capital gains. You can invest with your own money, through your employer, or you can transfer from an existing pension. With SIPPs you decide how much you want to invest. Self-invested personal pensions give you the opportunity to invest in a range of assets; including unit trusts, shares, cash or open ended investment companies.

The great thing about a SIPP is that for every £800 a UK tax payer saves, the government gives you tax relief, effectively boosting your savings by £200, giving you a total contribution of £1,000. And if you are a higher rate tax payer, you may claim more tax relief through your annual tax return.

If you are considering transferring to a SIPP, it may be sensible to talk to an authorised financial advisor before making a decision.
