Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP)

Important information - 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 and tax treatment depends on personal circumstances and all tax rules may change in the future. You can't 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.

Looking after future you, today

Fidelity’s flexible, award-winning SIPP is a great way to save for retirement with significant tax benefits. You choose what to invest in and when and can contribute in lump sums or with a regular savings plan.

When the time comes to begin taking your pension.

The Government is consulting on potential changes to the age when you can access your pension. Please read this important notice about proposed changes to the retirement age.

*To pay in a total of £1,000 to your SIPP, you would only need to contribute £800, and the government would pay the other £200. If you pay income tax at above the basic rate, you can claim even more tax relief through your tax return or by writing to HMRC.

Tax-efficient savings

  • Any contributions you make are boosted by the government. For every £80 you invest the HMRC adds £20 - and more if you’re a higher or additional rate taxpayer.
  • With your 2021/22 tax year pension allowance you can invest up to £40,000, capped at the amount you earn if this is less.
  • Your pension pot grows free of UK tax and you can normally take up to 25% tax free cash from age 55, with the rest of your withdrawals subject to income tax at your marginal rate.

Time to take control of your retirement

Open a SIPP

Start a regular savings plan from £20, or make a lump sum payment of at least £800.

Transfer a pension

Enter details of your current provider, we'll do the rest and let you know when it's complete.

If your employer will be the primary payer to the SIPP, you can open an account with the Employer SIPP form.

If someone else (e.g. your partner) will be the primary payer, open your account with the Third party SIPP form.

 

Bring your pensions together

Having pensions spread across multiple companies can be both time-consuming and costly. Bringing them together in one place means less stress and less paperwork.

Fidelity’s SIPP can also make a good home for old pensions when you're ready to transfer, providing you with a single view of your retirement savings and helping you be better prepared for the future you want.

We don’t charge you to transfer and we’ll even cover any exit fees you may incur, up to a total of £500 per person (T&Cs apply)

Important information - 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 recommend that you seek advice from an authorised financial adviser.
