Good news. Yes, you can. Thanks to a rule change on 6 April 2012, individuals over 60 are allowed to take both occupational and personal pensions as cash provided the fund does not exceed £2,000 and they won't get any other benefits from the pension once the cash is taken.
One-quarter of the payment is taxfree, but the rest will be treated as taxable income. However, it's worth noting the rules only allow this facility to be used twice in a lifetime.
