There's no fixed route to retirement, and everyone's situation is different. That’s why we'll make sure your retirement plans today are good enough for tomorrow.
It’s tricky to know if your retirement plans today will be good enough for tomorrow and beyond. In particular, you want to rest assured that what you’re doing now will afford you the lifestyle you want, as well as some much-needed R&R. You’ve worked your whole life towards it, after all.
That’s why it’s important your planning for retirement goes beyond your state pension. Increases to withdrawal age happen, and we’re expected to live much longer nowadays, so there’s an expectation for us to be doing more to secure the livelihood we want for when we start slowing down.
It’s not always easy to keep track of a pension, especially if you’ve been in more than one scheme or have changed employers throughout your career.
Over time, pension schemes close, merge or become renamed. So even if you remember the name of your scheme, it could now be called something else.Read more
The old adage fail to plan, plan to fail couldn’t be truer when planning for retirement. Too many rely solely on their state pension, failing to consider whether this will be enough for the rest of their life, and if it will be enough should their income needs change.
Retirement planning is important because it helps ensure that, later in life, you get the lifestyle you want, while avoiding nasty surprises along the way.
There’s no one-size-fits-all financial plan for retirement, but ideally plans should go beyond the state pension. However, retirement means different things to everyone, and what you want from it will be influential in shaping your plan.
Whether you’re slowing down work, stopping altogether, or tackling a new business venture, your plan should reflect what you want. Speaking with one of your financial advisors is a sure-fire way to get your retirement plans on track.
