Inheritance pot

Set some money aside as an inheritance for loved ones or a cause you care about

How the pot works

The inheritance pot works by:

  • you telling us the people or organisations you want to leave money to

  • keeping your inheritance savings invested in a long-term fund

  • allowing you to change who you want to receive the money, whenever you want

  • allowing you to move money out of the pot

Investment fund details

Money you put in this pot is invested in the Smart Sustainable Growth Fund. This fund is provided by Legal & General. To see the details of this investment fund, download the Smart Sustainable Growth Fund factsheet.


Money left in the inheritance pot is not normally subject to inheritance tax.

This is because Smart Retire is written under a pension trust and the money in your account does not form part of your estate. Find out more about inheritance tax.
