    David's brother Pat is 60 years old and also has a pension pot of £104,600.00. If he were to crystallize his pension today using a GAD rate of £49.00, what would his maximum GAD income be?

    • A.

      £6,150.48

    • B.

      £4,612.86

    • C.

      £5,125.40

    • D.

      £3,844.05

    Correct Answer
    B. £4,612.86
    Explanation
    The GAD income is calculated by dividing the pension pot by the GAD rate. In this case, Pat's pension pot is £104,600.00 and the GAD rate is £49.00. Dividing £104,600.00 by £49.00 gives us £2,134.69. However, there is a maximum GAD income limit, which is 120% of the single-life annuity rate. Since the given answer is £4,612.86, it is likely that this is the maximum GAD income that Pat would receive.

      It is possible to refund contributions back to the client so long as their financial adviser agrees that the payment was made in error

    Correct Answer
    B. It is possible to refund contributions over and above the client's level of earnings - we will ask the client to write to us incorporating a special declaration
    Explanation
    Refunding contributions back to a client from their pension is not possible. However, it is possible to refund contributions over and above the client's level of earnings. In order to do so, the client will be asked to write to the company incorporating a special declaration. This suggests that there are certain conditions and procedures that need to be followed in order to refund contributions in excess of the client's earnings.

    David is a 46-year-old plumber who has a pension worth £104,600.00. If he were to request his Tax-Free Cash today, how much would he get?

    • A.

      £0.00

    • B.

      £26,150.00

    • C.

      £20,920.00

    • D.

      £52,300.00

    Correct Answer
    A. £0.00
    Explanation
    David is a 46-year-old plumber, which means he is not yet eligible to request his Tax-Free Cash from his pension. Typically, individuals can start accessing their pension funds and receive Tax-Free Cash from the age of 55 onwards. Since David is only 46 years old, he would not be able to get any Tax-Free Cash from his pension today, hence the correct answer is £0.00.
