Lifetime ISA (LISA)
If you want to save for retirement or to buy your first home, you should consider opening a Lifetime ISA (LISA), which is available to people between the ages of 18 and 40. You can save up to £4,000 in the current tax year with a Lifetime ISA, which counts towards your annual ISA allowance. The government will add a 25% bonus to LISA savings, up to a maximum of £1,000 per year, and this does not count against your ISA allowance.
Remember that the money you put into a LISA each year counts toward your overall £20,000 ISA allowance — so if you put £4,000 in a LISA during the tax year, you’ll be able to put £16,000 into other ISAs.
