What sort of pension schemes were impacted by the April 2015 Budget changes?

Given all the talk in the budget around the changes to the pension legislation and the introduction of pension freedom I want to understand which types of pension schemes were going to be impacted.

The pension freedom changes relate to all types of defined contribution scheme and so will affect members of personal and group personal pensions (GPPs), stakeholder pensions, self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs) and some additional voluntary contribution (AVC) schemes.

Really, really helpful! Stopped me from signing up with an unhelpful company, and did basically all of the legwork for me in signing up with the right one. I can't have been the most helpful client as I'm 19 and only just started looking into it last week, but he took all the questions in stride! Put up with me turning to ask my dad questions every 2 minutes as well. I was helped by 2 workers; Sam and Nick. Thank you very much to both!

Sam Barr-Worsfold was very helpful and provided excellent customer service. Sam discovered I was paying too much premium for my current cover. Sam recommended and helped moved to a new cover with lower premium that provided the level of cover (terms required stated in the provider's policy) I wanted. I recommend highly recommend Sam and Drewberry Insurance. Thank you Sam.
