Hello After reviewing  your question,  you can take a cash lump sum payment.

When you take money from your pension pot, 25% is tax free. You pay Income Tax on the other 75%. Your tax-free amount doesn't use up any of your Personal Allowance – the amount of income you don't have to pay tax on.

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

Thank you in advance
