:: Scheme Member | A-Day: New Regulations from April 2006 | What was A-Day?

What was A-Day?
 
A-Day was on 6th April 2006. It was an attempt by Government to simplify the rules that govern pensions in the UK by introducing a single set of new rules. The new rules swept aside nearly half a century of previous pensions legislation.
 
This Factsheet takes a very brief look at the main issues surrounding A-Day, including:
  • Tax Relief
  • Annual Allowance
  • Lifetime Allowance
  • Death Benefits
For a more in-depth look at A-Day, see our Factsheet A-Day: Changes in detail.
