Pre Retirement – Pension Planning

If you are concerned about funding your lifestyle in retirement there are many variables that need to be considered before coming up with a strategy.

Typical issues to consider include:

  • What kind of lifestyle do you desire in retirement?
  • How much will this lifestyle cost when you retire?
  • What existing pension provision have you made?
  • What level of income will it realistically provide at retirement?
  • When will you qualify for State Pension?
  • How much will it be worth when you retire?
  • Will there be a shortfall in your existing pension provision?
  • How much will you need to save to address the shortfall?

Other common issues include:

  • Clients with a range of pension policies
  • What is the most suitable approach in this scenario?
  • Clients going through divorce and pension assets are being shared / split
  • Clients with deferred final salary schemes seeking advice on specific issues
