How much can you take from your pension? Divis plus 1pc, says new rule
Now a "1pc rule" has been introduced to solve the problem by former head of Telegraph Money Richard Dyson and Questor editor Richard Evans in their new book Your Retirement Salary.
The authors argue that investors should take income from dividends and supplement if necessary by selling no more than 1pc of their pot each year. This should protect the pot from any shock falls in the stock market and ensure it is not eroded too quickly.
