Do I have to withdraw all my pension benefits when I take flexible retirement?

If your employer agrees to flexible retirement then you would have to draw:

  • all of the benefits that you built up before 1 April 2009, plus
  • all, some or none of the benefits that you built up between 1 April 2009 and 31 March 2015, plus
  • all, some or none of the benefits that you have built up after 1 April 2015.
