Lifetime ISA: Fast facts

March 2020

Categories: Lifetime ISA

What does LISA stand for?

The Lifetime ISA.

What’s the big appeal?

The government will add a 25% bonus to what you invest, up to £1,000 a year on your maximum £4,000 investable allowance until you are 50.

Can anyone open a LISA?

No, you must be aged 18–39.

But if you have generous benefactors in your life, they can contribute to your LISA (cough – calling all affluent and benevolent parents and grandparents).

What about the drawbacks?

Your LISA must be used either to buy your first home (under the value of £450,000), otherwise you can access it penalty-free from age 60.

Can I combine a LISA with other ISAs?

You can invest in a LISA and use the rest of your annual tax-free ISA allowance of £20,000 per year.

Why should I choose an EQi LISA?
