You can use our ‘Mind the Gap’ pension’s calculator to see if you’re on track for the kind of retirement lifestyle you want or need. Also, visit out Fund Centre to see up to date information on how your pension funds are performing.

Planning your retirement involves careful consideration. If you are approaching retirement we recommend you talk to your financial broker to discuss your options.

How do I get my pension?

You have a number of options at retirement and you can combine these options whatever way suits you. The four main options are.

  1. Take a tax-free cash lump sum.
  2. Buy an Annuity which gives you a regular income for the rest of your life, no matter how long you live.
  3. Reinvest your pension fund in an Approved Retirement Fund (ARF) which allows you to withdraw from your pension as and when you want.
  4. Take a taxed cash lump sum.

For more information on retirement and these options take a look at our useful Retirement Guides.
