Hello and thank you for your patience,  you can borrow against the pensions but most pensions start at the age of 55 , if you want to do it after August  that is very  possible, if you want to draw earlier  I would strongly  recommend  you get in touch with the provider to see if it is feasible.

Please kindly feel free to ask if you need me to clarify  my answer.

All the best
