General SIPP FAQ

What is a SIPP?

A self-invested personal pension, or a “SIPP”, is a type of investment product that helps you build your savings for retirement. Notably, a SIPP gives you much more flexibility with the investments you can select when compared to typical personal pensions.

Once you invest money into a SIPP it will be locked up until you turn 55. You can then start drawing funds, even if you haven’t stopped working. You can withdraw up to 25% of your fund as a tax-free lump sum with the remainder used to provide an income.

What can I invest in with Freetrade?

You can invest in a wide range of listed shares, ETFs and investment trusts with your Freetrade SIPP. We’ve got a full list of the investments available on our platform that we update regularly.

Can I transfer old pension pots into a Freetrade SIPP?

Yes. You are able to transfer old pension pots (maybe some you forgot about!) into your Freetrade SIPP.

How much can I contribute each year?

Contributions are capped at 100% of your annual income. You’re also able to claim tax relief on the first £40,000 you contribute each year.

Do transfers count towards my contributions?

No, transfers don’t use up your annual allowance. You should be aware, though, that some providers may charge exit fees or other surcharges in order to transfer.

Can my employer contribute?

We are not allowing this to start with, but hope to in the future.

Important information

SIPPs are a pension product designed for people who want to make their own investment decisions. You can normally only access the money from age 55 (potentially 57 from 2028). Current rules can change, and tax relief depends on your personal circumstances.

When you invest, your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest.

Before transferring a pension you should ensure that this is the right thing for you todo and in particular you will not lose valuable guarantees or incur excessive transfer penalties. Pensions are usually transferred as cash so you will be out of the market for a period and therefore there is a risk you may lose out on investment gains duringthis period.

Freetrade does not currently offer drawdown products for our SIPP.

The fees displayed on this page do not include any fees which may be charged by product manufacturers (e.g. ETF management fees).
