  1. Paperwork and feeling I've let my husband down

    Sometimes it feels like the paperwork will never end.

He already lives on a good work pension so I am looking into the possibility of him drawing down 25% on each of the two small pensions (which I think he can do under the new pension rules - and I think he gets the 25% tax free).
