Mike and Linda were diligent savers, spending a lot of time ‘chasing rates’ to get the most out of their savings. They were looking for reassurance that their money wouldn’t run out and that there would be enough left over for their loved ones to enjoy.
Seeking pension advice | Establishing the value of your pension | BlueSKY
When planning for retirement, it’s essential to establish what income your pensions will provide. Nevertheless, many people are unsure what they can expect.
For most people, it’s likely that you will have several pensions scattered around with very little idea of their value. If this is the case, you’re unlikely to know what income they’ll provide in retirement, how they’re performing, and the charges being paid.
The value of your pensions will affect many elements of life, both now and in the future: from the age at which you can retire to the lifestyle you can expect. Establishing what you have and what it will provide in the future, sooner rather than later, is often the key to achieving your goals and aspirations in retirement.
