Pension freedoms have transformed the pension landscape, giving more choice than ever before in shaping retirement plans to best meet our individual needs and circumstances.

Once you’ve decided to start saving for retirement, you need to choose how to do so. Pensions have a number of important advantages that will make your savings grow more rapidly than might otherwise be the case.

Following the biggest reforms to pensions in recent times, whilst the ability to unlock pension pots is attractive, you also need to understand the tax implications of doing this and accept the risk of ensuring that the funds built up are managed effectively to ensure that they last for life, however long that may be, and don’t rely on the State Pension to keep you going in retirement.  The maximum basic State Pension is £164.35 per week (effective from 6 April 2018).

What is a pension pot?

‘Pension pot’ refers to a type of pension you build up with pension contributions you and/or your employer make. You’ll have one if you have a ‘defined contribution’ pension which includes workplace, personal and stakeholder pension schemes.

If you’re planning to retire in the next couple of years – or to start drawing your pension so you can reduce your working hours – then you’ll be aware that there are some major choices to be made. This is a complex area and there are many factors you will need to think about.  An initial discussion with us will allow you to explore your options and help you make the right decisions based on your personal needs and circumstances.
