Whether your retirement is just around the corner or a long way off, it’s worth thinking about what kind of lifestyle you want in retirement and how you’ll get there.
Ever wonder how much you will need when you retire? Or how you can take your pension savings?
Here are some useful tools that may help you.
Our retirement tool acts as a guide to help you understand the income you might need to fund the retirement lifestyle you want. It can give you an idea of what you should aim for.
Our pension calculator helps you get a clearer picture of what your pension savings could be worth. This is a great way to see how increasing your payments now, could impact your future.
If there is a potential shortfall based on what you are paying in, you can aim to reduce this gap by paying in a bit more or paying over a longer term. And, you can try different amounts and retirement dates to see what differences this might make.
The figures in the calculator are only illustrative and are not guaranteed. As a pension is an investment, its value can go down as well as up and it could be worth less than what was paid in.
