LIFETIME ISA RULES
Buying your first home:
- Your first property must be located within the UK and must not cost more than £450,000
- The Lifetime ISA must have been opened for at least 12 months for you to receive any government bonus
- The bonus is per individual, so two individuals can combine their government bonus when buying together
- If you withdraw the money before you turn 60 and it is not to buy your first home then you will incur a 25% penalty on the total sum. This is payable to the government, unless you are diagnosed with a terminal illness or upon your death.
For your retirement:
- Withdraw the money tax free on or after your 60th birthday
- The Lifetime ISA can work alongside your pension. Compare the tax-efficient wrappers in our comparison below or watch our short video here
- If you withdraw the money before you turn 60 then you will incur a 25% penalty on the total sum. This is payable to the government, unless you are diagnosed with a terminal illness or upon your death
