If you elect to take your benefits from the DC Section of the Scheme, or any other registered pension arrangement using the new pension flexibilities available, for example in the form of a Uncrystallised Funds Pension Lump Sum (UFPLS) you will trigger, for the tax year you draw your benefits (and for future years), a Money Purchase Annual Allowance. This means your tax efficient contributions to any defined contribution scheme will be more restricted (currently to £10,000, but the Government has announced that it intends to reduce this to £4,000).
