BENEFITS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR PLAN

You can control the tax point by choosing when to take the benefits which can be useful if you become a lower rate tax payer, or if you have moved to a different country with a lower tax rate.  If you are a UK tax payer, you can withdraw up to 5% of your original investment each year for up to 20 years without  triggering a chargeable event.  Taking regular withdrawals can be a tax efficient way of using the plan to provide income.  This benefit is cumulative, so you can carry forward your 5% allowance if you don't use it each year.  Please note that withdrawals to provide an income will be taxed as a return of capital.
