Planning for tomorrow today, that will meet your income objectives in the future.
What Is Retirement Planning?
Retirement planning is about deciding now, what it is you want to do when you finish working and how much you might need to do it.
The reality is you need to invest as much of your income into a pension as you can. However, it is important to make informed decisions about how much you save and where. How you invest that money depends on your circumstances, and which kind of investments you feel comfortable with. This is related to your attitude to risk and is something we can help you with.
Understanding Your Options
There are many savings options available to you, such as a work based pension or a personal pension. It is your decision whether or not, or what you would prefer to contribute toward. However we can help you understand your options, explain what would be best for you given your circumstances and we will regularly review your situation to ensure you continue to save toward retirement in the best possible way.
Do not forget your pension can be a very tax efficient way to save, as the Government will give you tax relief on amounts up to current maximum limits.
If you are reaching retirement age, or have already retired, there are a number of new options available to you, such as flexible drawdown. It is important you consider how you generate an income from your pension fund as it needs to last the rest of your lifetime which could be until you are over 100 years old!
A pension is a long term investment the fund value may fluctuate and can go down. Your eventual income may depend upon the size of the fund at retirement, future interest rates and tax legislation.
