You don't have to retire now. If you're not ready to give up work or think you can't afford to retire yet, you just need to let your pension provider know. Basically, it's up to you when you want to take your retirement benefits. You just need to remember that with Aviva, you must do something with your pension fund before your 75th birthday. For further information please refer to our FAQs - Can I retire after I'm 75?

If you're invested in a unit-linked fund, the fund value can go up and down. The degree of fluctuation will depend on the type of fund you're invested in. If your money is in a high risk fund, the value is likely to fluctuate to a greater degree than if it was in a lower risk fund.
If you're invested in a with-profits fund, the value can go up and down. We may apply a market value reduction if you delay your retirement and continue to invest in the fund.
If you're invested in a unit-linked fund or a with-profits fund then you may get back less than the amount paid in.
You should check with your financial adviser or pension provider about the implications of delaying your retirement before you make your final decision.
