I want to request my retirement options

Published 29 March 2023

If you want to know more about your retirement options you can find them here.

You can also find free and impartial help and information by visiting the MoneyHelper website or calling them on 0800 138 7777.

You can normally start to access your pension savings at any time from age 55 onwards. If you want to find out more about the retirement options available to you from your ReAssure pension, simply complete this form and we’ll send them to you. Please only request this if you are at least 55 years of age or will be 55 in the next six months.

Choosing what to do with your pension pot is an important financial decision. We recommend you use the government’s free, impartial guidance service, called Pension Wise from MoneyHelper, or get personalised financial advice, before making any decision about which option is most suitable for your personal circumstances.

You can make an appointment with one of Pension Wise’s specialists at moneyhelper.org.uk/pensionwise, by calling them direct on 0800 280 8880, or we can book an appointment for you. Let us know if you want us to do this.

We will ask you whether you have taken Pension Wise guidance or regulated financial advice before we proceed with any request from you to take your pension savings.

Important - if you think any of the following may apply to your ReAssure pension, please give us a call instead and we’ll let you know what your retirement options are:

  • A protected early retirement age
  • A Pension Sharing Order (this is a formal agreement to divide your pension following a divorce or the dissolution of a civil partnership)
  • A Bankruptcy Order (if you have a court order declaring bankruptcy, the trustees in bankruptcy may have a claim on your pension assets)

You can call us on 0800 073 1777 between 8:30 am to 5:30pm, Monday to Friday (not including bank holidays).

Our online service is the quickest way to tell us what you need. However, if you’re unable to, you can call or write to us:
