See all of our FAQ help points

What does LifePlan mean by Downsize/Equity Release?
Downsize / Equity Release is where you release all or a proportion of any equity that has accumulated in your home by either selling or re-mortgaging your home. LifePlan asks you if you wish to repay any outstanding mortgage with the equity that is released.  Note: If you plan to sell your home to fund care home costs please answer ‘no’ to Downsize and complete the Care Home Costs section in Expenditure.
What does LifePlan mean by general estimate for income (yield)?
This is how much you estimate your investments to pay out (or re-invest) as annual income expressed as a percentage of the capital sum invested.
The whole of my SIPP is invested in equities so I dont know how long it will last?
LifePlan shows you in the ‘my capital’ chart how long your SIPP will last based on the estimated rate of growth and the level of income that you have selected. You can change these factors at any time and LifePlan will immediately re-calculate any new expiry date.
I have an investment that is not specified in any of the Lifeplan questions.
If this investment generates taxable income, enter these details as a Personal Investment in the Assets and Investments  section. If this investment generates tax-free income, enter these details in the ISA/other tax-free  investment section within Assets and Investments.
Where will I find the annual National Insurance Contributions (NIC) deducted from my annual pay.
You can get this from your P60 or from your employer. Alternatively, you can estimate the annual figure by taking the NIC from one of your payslips and multiplying this  by 12.
