Start planning for the future you want

We don't know what the future holds, but a little preparation goes a long way when it comes to planning your retirement. The earlier you start saving, the longer your pensions pot will have to potentially grow in value. That leaves you free to focus on what matters, whether that's hobbies, holidays or just some well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Pensions made simple

We know...planning for retirement isn't everyone's idea of fun. And in the past you may have found it all a bit confusing. But at Aviva, we aim to keep things simple so here are the basics facts you should know about pensions.

What exactly is a pension?

It's the money that you'll live on once you stop working. It basically replaces the salary or wages that you earned before you retired.

What is a pension plan?

It's a type of saving account, but one that gives you important tax breaks. You can use it to build up your money and give yourself an income after you stop working. A pension plan is a long-term arrangement, so you can't dip into it before you retire.

Why do I need a pension plan?

When you stop working, your pay will come to an end but unfortunately, those bills will just keep coming. So unless you win the lottery or inherit a large sum of money, your pension will almost certainly be your main source of income after you retire.

How do I get started?

Meet with a financial broker - it's like a health check for your finances. They will help you to review your current finances, recommend possible solutions and make sure your money is working as hard as possible to provide you with the security you need, now and in the future

The pension gap

The fact is that as a nation, we're not saving enough for our retirement. And there's a big gap between how much people are putting away and the income they'll need to give them an adequate standard of living when they retire.
