You asked: How long will the total Aviva Pension (SIPP), transfer, drawdown, payment in bank account process take?
The timescales to take an income from the Aviva Pension can vary, but typically it will take 3-6 weeks to complete the transfer stage. Once you are ready to arrange your drawdown, log into MyAviva and select 'MyInvestmentPortfolio', and start the process to withdraw money from your pension. We 'll process your drawdown - this typically takes up to 2 days and then any payments are issued by BACS - tax free lump sums take 3-5 working days to be credited, with taxable payments taking 4-6 working days. Setting up regular payments can take up to 10 working days.
