Deadline for applying for Individual Protection 2014 (IP2014)

03 February 2017


The deadline to apply for individual protection 2014 (IP2014) is 5 April 2017. If you want to protect your pension savings using IP2014 then HMRC must have received your completed application no later than 5 April 2017.

Members who want to apply for IP2014 protection must do this through the lifetime allowance online service, accessed through the guide Pension schemes: protect your lifetime allowance.

To apply, you will need a HMRC online services account. To create an account, or to login to an existing one, you should go to HMRC services: sign in or register.

You can find more information about the lifetime allowance and protecting your pension savings on GOV.UK.

Although the deadline for IP2014 applications closes at midnight on 5 April 2017, individuals will still be able to log on and amend an existing application after this date.
