However, spending some time thinking about your retirement goals now and how long you have to achieve them will help ensure you get to where you want to be.
With so many different types of retirement plans in existence, we will help you navigate which ones may be suitable for you depending on where you live now, where you lived when the pension capital was accumulated, where you plan to retire, and how you plan to access your pension income.
Succession planning is another hugely important factor for how this part of your wealth can be passed on in the event of your death. The treatment can vary vastly from one scheme to another, and can also vary depending on who the beneficiaries are and their relation to you. Make sure the plan you have in place caters for your wishes so that your beneficiaries are not left with an unpleasant surprise at what will already be a very difficult time for them.
