An introduction to the
Moneybox Lifetime ISA

What is the Lifetime ISA?

  • The Lifetime ISA is a product designed by the government to help people aged 18-39 buy their first home or save for retirement.
  • You can save up to £4,000 each tax year and get a 25% government bonus on all savings.
  • If you pay in the maximum of £4,000 you’ll receive a £1,000 bonus. Over time, these bonuses could give you a real head start.
  • If you need to withdraw money for any reason other than your first home or retirement, you’ll pay a government charge of 20% on the value of your withdrawal. This means you will lose any government bonuses you have earned. Please note this is a temporary reduction in the government charge from 6 March 2020 - 5 April 2021. After this period the government withdrawal charge will revert to 25% (you'll pay an additional £6.25 for every £100 deposited).

What else should I know?

  • To open a Lifetime ISA you must be aged 18-39.
  • You can continue contributing into a Lifetime ISA until you are aged 50.
  • You must be a UK tax resident (and non-US citizen) only.
  • You must use it to save towards your first home, provided the value is no more than £450,000, or for your retirement when you reach 60. Please note you must have held your Lifetime ISA for at least one year before using it to purchase your first home.
  • Remember, the value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest.

It's important you know

There is a 20% government withdrawal charge unless you use the money towards buying your first home (up to £450,000) or for retirement (from age 60), meaning you will lose any government bonuses you have earned. Please note this is a temporary reduction from 6 March 2020 – 5 April 2021. After this period the government withdrawal charge will revert to 25% (you’ll pay an additional £6.25 for every £100 deposited). The value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest. The Lifetime ISA is treated differently for tax purposes when compared to a pension. If you decide to opt out of your workplace pension and instead pay into a Lifetime ISA, you will not benefit from any employer-matched contributions into your LISA and it may affect your current and future entitlement to means-tested state benefits. If considering the Lifetime ISA for the purposes of retirement, we recommend you speak with an independent financial advisor.
