If I move My UK Pension to Ireland, When Can I access It?

The minimum retirement age on a QROPS Pension in Ireland which was transferred from the UK is 55.

All transfers received into the QROPS after 6th April 2017 can only be accessed where you have not been UK tax resident for at least 10 UK tax years prior to accessing pension benefits.

If you meet the requirements you can normally receive 25% of the value of your pension tax free (up to a value of €200,000). You can then start to receive a monthly pension income.

When you are making any decisions about your pensions it’s important to get advice from a financial advisor to make sure that you are maximising your benefits when it comes to pensions and tax reliefs.
