Savers have withdrawn £1.8 billion from pension schemes in just two months – and invested in income-paying funds. According to the Association of British Insurers, following the new freedoms introduced in April allowing full access to pension pots at retirement, 250,000 Britons have  chosen to withdraw cash totalling almost £2 billion.

During the two months to the end of May £1.3 billion was invested in income paying funds, with the majority of investors choosing drawdown products over annuities. Savers have invested £630 million into 11,300 annuities, and £720 million into 10,300 drawdown products. In the March 2014 Budget Chancellor George Osborne announced plans to scrap compulsory annuity purchasing at retirement, promising to treat pension savers “like adults” – free to spend their savings as they wish.
