Pension support

Looking to add or withdraw money from your pension?

Our simple questions and answers will help you understand more about saving into your pension and how to use the money in your pension pot when you want to access it.

Saving into my pension

Pensions might seem complicated, but the idea is simple. A pension is basically a long-term savings plan with tax relief so your savings can grow quicker than might otherwise be the case.

While providing a foundation, the state pension may not be enough for you to live on. You may wish to reduce your working hours or stop working altogether before the state pension age, so it’s important to make sure you’re saving enough now to provide for your future. For most people the main way they top up this income is with their pension.

Because we believe in the value of financial advice, we recommend you speak to your adviser about how you can make the most of your pension savings.
