Robust Retirement Planning
For the vast majority of people, income in retirement will depend on the value of the pension fund they have accrued. When approaching retirement, one of the most important decisions you need to make is “what is the best pension option for me?” Should you move into drawdown, or take an annuity with an Open Market Option, a single or a joint life or an increasing pension.
Recent changes to pension legislation governing how you draw your pension has made it vitally important to get the right advice before deciding what to do with your pension. The new flexible pension rules mean you have far more choice when approaching retirement. For example, you can to take lump sums, cash it all in or take an income. Each scenario has different tax implications and there is also the consideration that your current pension provider may not support flexible drawdown.
