Self Invested Personal Pension

A SIPP gives you all the standard tax benefits of a pension, but you get a greater investment choice which can help spread your money further and reduce your risk. You can invest up to £40,000 in your SIPP for the 2021/22 tax year.

SIPP benefits

Why save into a pension?

  • The state pension as of 2021/22 pays £179.60 per week which is less than the average retirement income according to the Government’s most recent data.
  • Money that you would have paid in income tax goes toward your future instead.
  • You can take up to a quarter of your pension savings as a tax-free lump sum when you retire.

Investment options

  • Having a diversified portfolio can be one of the simplest ways to minimise your investment risk.
  • In the IWeb SIPP you can choose from over 2,500 funds, shares, investment trusts and more to build your own portfolio. You’re in control of what you buy and sell.

Advantages of a SIPP?

  • Helps you save tax efficiently for your retirement.
  • Gives you freedom to choose where you want to invest your money and spreads your risk.
  • Provides income in the form of lump sums and/or regular income.
  • Reduces inheritance tax so you can pass on more of your money.

Self-employed?

  • If you work for yourself then you’re in charge of your own retirement pot, so it’s even more important to pay into your own pension.
  • Building up your pension savings is a challenge in the current climate but a SIPP could help.
  • You’ve made a choice in life to be more independent. Adding money to a pension can help make sure that continues, whenever you decide to stop working.
