In this week's quick fire RP poll we ask RP readers: Should withdrawals from pension pots to fund long-term care costs be made tax free?
Last week's poll asked: Will platforms face a capacity crunch post-April 2015?
Advisers are of the opinion that platforms will struggle to cope when pension freedoms begin.
Some 67% thought platforms businesses will struggle to cope with demand. Far fewer - 22% - were confident platforms would cope. The rest, 11%, didn't know.
The poll came after Standard Life sounded alarm bells. It said demand for drawdown is likely to increase by a factor of five when retirement freedoms kick-in, causing a provider and platform ‘capacity crunch'.
