*The Money Purchase Annual Allowance (MPAA) is the maximum amount you can pay into your defined contribution pension savings in one year, and still get tax relief. The MPAA is triggered if taxable income is paid to you directly from The Retirement Account and Fixed Term Income Plan due to their flexi-access drawdown status.
