Why a pension is a good idea

Your pension gives you the chance to invest for your retirement.


Approaching retirement

If you're over 50 there are a few things you should start to consider.

We’ve created some simple tools to help you explore your options and the important things to think about.



Your pension is normally a long term investment and you usually can't withdraw money until the age of 55 (may be subject to change). As with any investment, the value can go down as well as up and may be worth less than what was paid in.
