How does PensionBee drawdown work?

Combine your pensions and start withdrawing a retirement income in a few steps

Access your savings

Bring your pensions together and make drawdown simpler

PensionBee combines all your old pensions into one online plan. This makes withdrawals much easier, as all your money is together. Plus there’s no drawdown fees unless you take your entire pot within 12 months*.

*If your pot has been with PensionBee for less than a year and you wish to withdraw it in full, then a full withdrawal fee of £480 applies. This fee will also be charged should the value of your account be less than the £480 fee at the point of withdrawal.

Make withdrawals

Fund your retirement from 55

Our drawdown option gets activated as soon as you hit your 55th birthday. After that, you just need to head to your BeeHive’s withdrawal tab to start the process.

Take as much or as little as you like

There’s no maximum or minimum amount you can withdraw - what you take is totally up to you. Our drawdown calculator tells you how much of your cash is taxable, and how much can be taken tax-free.

Draw down in a few simple steps

It’s just a case of answering some simple questions. Paying out your money typically takes around two to three weeks, and your dedicated BeeKeeper will be on hand every step of the way.

A fair fee

Stay invested in retirement

Anything you leave in your pot will remain invested, and you can keep contributing if you wish. However, certain tax rules will apply so it’s important to bear these in mind.

Compensation ensured

Commitment to compensation

If something happens to our money managers, which is where your money is kept, your pension will be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme up to 100%. We'll also pursue any compensation on your behalf.
