A SSAS (Small Self-Administered Scheme) is a pension trust that gives its members control of their pension funds and assets. A SSAS allows members to invest funds at their own discretion.
A SSAS has access to every type of investment that is allowed under rules set out by legislation, as with traditional pensions. In addition, a SSAS has additional investment privileges, such as investing in property or investing in your business, amongst other things. You can make permitted investments at any age; you do not need to be 55 to take control of the money in your pension.
