There is no such thing as a silly question
Do I have to buy an annuity through my pension provider?
No. You can choose who you buy your annuity from - it doesn't have to be with the company that you used to build up your pension fund. (This is known as the open market option). The amount of income you get from your annuity will vary between different insurance companies, so it's a good idea to do some comparisons before making your decision
Will I have to pay tax on my annuity income?
The income shown on your personal quote will be gross (before tax).
Your income will normally be taxed under the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) system, which is similar to tax on employment income. Tax is deducted according to your tax code, and passed into HM Revenue & Customs.
How much you pay depends on your personal circumstances. Any reference we make to tax are based on our understanding of current legislation and HM Revenue & Customs practice, which can change.
How will my annuity income be paid?
Your income from your annuity will be paid directly into your bank account.
