You asked: What happens to income drawdown funds when I die?

Your beneficiaries will have the choice of taking your remaining pension pot as a lump sum, continuing to take drawdown income, or using it to buy a lifetime annuity - usually free of inheritance tax. These payments are tax free if you die before age 75 and taxed as income at the beneficiaries marginal rate if you die after age 75.
