Payment options

How much will you pay?

When you become a member of the Fenner Retirement Plan, you’ll pay in a minimum percentage from your pensionable salary every month. On top of this Fenner will also pay in a percentage of your pensionable salary. And you get tax benefits because your payments are deducted from your salary before tax is calculated.

You can stick with paying the minimum, but you should think about whether paying just the minimum will get you the lifestyle you want when you stop working. Ask your local HR/payroll department for more information about this.

Your payment options

You can adjust your payments and you can pay as much as you like up to the Government payment limits.

Change your payments

Keep up to date with your payments and find out how you can change the amount that you're paying.


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.
