A new survey for online platform and SIPP provider AJ Bell on the 5th anniversary of the Pension Freedoms suggests withdrawals have been falling year on year.

We all know that annuity sales have been in decline for some time with the rise in popularity of drawdown under the Pension Freedoms and the poor value they are perceived to offer.

Pension savers who were overtaxed on Pension Freedom withdrawals have been repaid £535mm by HMRC since 2015. 
New figures published today by HMRC show that a total of £30bn has been withdrawn ‘flexibly’ from pensions, taking advantage of the new ‘pension freedoms’ introduced in 2015. 

AJ Bell has launched a retirement income solution to help financial advisers manage clients taking income in retirement. 

Savers withdrew £2.75billion flexibly using the pension freedoms in Q2 2019, up 21% compared to a year earlier, new figures have revealed.
Worried retirees have revealed their fears as the fourth anniversary of pension freedoms approaches.
A multimedia firm has created a new video which seeks to explain pension freedoms to clients.
Pension withdrawals continued to soar in the third quarter of 2018 leading to suggestions that some pensions savers are treating their pensions like bank accounts, dipping in to withdraw cash when they need it.
The launch of a new FCA and TPR campaign to boost awareness of pensions scams has been welcomed by the profession.
