Why consider Pension?
A Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) lets you choose how you want to invest the money you save for your retirement. You also receive an extra boost from HMRC
For every £100 you add to your SIPP, the government automatically gives you an extra £25*.
Withdraw up to 25% of the money built up in your pension as a tax-free lump sum when you’re 55.
Use the &me app to control how your money is invested and keep track of your performance.

The &me Classic portfolios are a lower-cost way to invest with &me. Our passive portfolios invest in equities and bonds across different regions such as US equities and UK corporate bonds and also hold some cash. Investment experts from M&G Wealth decide which investments to use and how much to invest in each asset class on your behalf, based on a range of factors including the potential to generate long-term returns for investors.
Below are the rest of the fees for our Classic portfolios. We invest your money in many different funds. These funds charge fees. We try to keep these fees as low as we can on your behalf. The cost of buying an asset is usually more than the price you can sell it for. The difference in these two prices is called the market spread. We include this information here to give you a clear idea of the total fees you pay when you invest. There is no market spread fee on the Targeted portfolio range.

More information about Pensions

Yes. Everyone has the same pension allowance no matter how they’re employed. And if you own a limited company, you can even have your business pay directly into your &me personal pension which reduces your company’s tax bill.
This new tax year, investors should be aware of some significant changes to pensions.
On the plus side, the government has increased your allowance from £40,000 to £60,000, meaning you can contribute up to £60,000 a year tax-free.
What’s more, the lifetime allowance charge has been eliminated as of 6th April 2023, and the lifetime allowance itself will be abolished next tax year (2024/25), removing any cap on pension benefits while still receiving tax relief.
On the other hand, the government has cut capital gains tax (CGT) from £12,300 to £6,000, and it’s set to halve again to just £3,000 next tax year (2024/25).
These tax changes mean that it has become more important than ever for you to make use of all your personal allowances and tax wrappers, including your SIPP allowance.
The minimum pension amount you can transfer to the &me SIPP is £500.
The current rule is that a tax charge applies if you have more than £1.05 million in your pension savings when you want to start taking money. If this affects you, we recommend speaking with one of our &me consultants who can check you’re being as tax-efficient as possible.
If you have less than £1.05 million, you have the option to take 25% of your pension as a tax-free lump sum when you reach the age of 55. You can then use the rest to give you an income, which will be subject to regular income tax charges.
It slightly differs if you pass away before or after 75.
If under 75, we’ll arrange for your &me pension value to go to your beneficiaries free of tax unless you have more than £1.05 million in your pension.
If after 75, any money paid to your beneficiaries is treated as income and they’ll be taxed accordingly.
