When you retire you still need food and shelter as an absolute minimum, but of course you will want to maintain the lifestyle to which you have become accustomed, so unless you can guarantee a large inheritance or windfall, then you need to provide yourself with a secure income for the rest of your life.
A well prepared pension plan which is regularly reviewed should go some way to providing you with a reasonable level of income in your retirement.
A pension plan requires action as soon as possible, so start now – and if you have already started, take the opportunity to have a closer look at your existing arrangements to make sure you are on track.
The value of pensions and the income they produce can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested. Tax treatment varies according to individual circumstances and is subject to change.
