An introduction to the
Moneybox Stocks & Shares Lifetime ISA

What is the Lifetime ISA?

  • The Lifetime ISA is a new product, designed by the government to help you buy your first home.
  • With the Lifetime ISA you get a 25% government bonus on all savings up to £4,000 per year.
  • For every £4 you pay in, you get £1 for free to put towards your first home.
  • 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 withdraw for any reason other than buying a first home (after the LISA has been open for 12 months), or retirement after 60 you will pay a government charge of 25%.The net effect of the 25% bonus, then 25% charge is that you lose £6.25 per each £100 you pay in (excluding gains/losses and fees)

  • To open a Lifetime ISA you must be aged 18-39.
  • You can continue contributing into a Lifetime ISA until you are 50.

It's important you know

Please note that you may get back less than you invest if the value of your investments falls.

There is a 25% government withdrawal charge unless you use the money towards buying your first home (up to £450,000) or for retirement (from age 60).

Please note that a Lifetime ISA is treated differently for tax purposes when compared to a pension.

If you decide to opt out of your workplace pension to pay into a Lifetime ISA, you will not benefit from any employer-matched contributions 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 as considerations can be complicated.

It's important you know

All investing should be regarded as longer term. The value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest.
