What is the pension lifetime allowance?

The lifetime allowance is the amount you can hold in all of your pensions over your lifetime. It is currently set at £1.0731 million. It used to be £1.25 million but was reduced, which is why more and more people are caught out by it.

How does the lifetime allowance work?

Your pension is assessed against this allowance when you take benefits, die or reach age 75. Any excess is taxed at 25% on top of income tax if taken as income, or 55% if taken as a lump sum.
