OK, as some may know I was made redundant recently from a well paid job and have been investing in funds for a short while. I have been job hunting which takes time and yesterday a though occurred to me. By actively managing the pension funds and using drawdown instead of taking an annuity the numbers to very good. It's a shock and I didn't get to sleep until after 4am but haven't found a hole yet. The biggest issue is that I have been focussed on work for a long time and will need to get out and do things but there are some decent volunteering options (air ambulance, STEM ambassador etc.). Gulp!
