In 2015, the government said that people who had already retired and were taking their pensions, would be able to take the cash in 2017.   This would have helped five million pensioners on very small pensions, some as low as ten pound a year.   In 2016 the Government did a u turn an stopped this happening on the grounds of consumer protection, but those approaching retirement and not yet taken their pensions are still allowed to take the cash.   This is iniquitous and grossly unfair as some pensioners could badly do with the cash release.
