what is fixed protection

crystallised fund example
Crystallised fund example
  • Bob aged 71, consolidated all pensions into SIPP
  • Crystallises 1.35 Million into Capped Drawdown
  • Uses 75% of the Lifetime allowance, leaves 25% unused
  • Takes PCLS of £337,500 and no income
what happens at age 75 no protection
What happens at age 75 - no protection
  • Bobs fund had increased from 1.0125 Million (net of PCLS) to 1.45 Million in June 2015 when he reaches 75
  • BCE 5a – (1.45-1.0125) = £437,500
  • Remaining lifetime allowance = 25% of 1.5M = £375,000
  • So excess charge on £62,500
what happens at age 75 fixed protection
What happens at age 75 - fixed protection
  • Bobs fund had increased from 1.0125 Million (net of PCLS) to 1.45 Million in June 2015 when he reaches 75
