Can I put my pension into an ISA?

You can't transfer money directly from a pension plan into a stocks and shares ISA. Once you start to take money from your pension after the age of 55 (57 from 6th April 2028), you are free to re-invest it in a stocks and shares ISA if you wish. If you have a defined contribution (money purchase) pension, you should remember that the money in it is already invested and there's no guarantee that it will do better in a stocks and shares ISA than it would have done if you had left it in the pension. In either product, the value could go down as well as up and you could get back less than was paid in.
