What Is A Personal Pension?

A Personal Pension Plan is a private pension policy that is managed for you, normally in conjunction with a life assurance company. It is essentially a long-term savings plan whereby you make regular contributions to help you build up an income for your retirement.

Who Is Eligible To Set Up A Personal Pension?

  • Self-employed individuals.
  • Employees who are not provided with a pension by their employer.

How Do Personal Pensions Work?

  • You invest a % of your income in a pension fund over a long-term period e.g. 20-35 years.
  • You choose the pension provider and then allocate your investment to one or more of their competing funds.
  • You may review and change your fund choice at a later stage.
  • Most providers have sufficient funds available for you to invest in a mix of asset classes such as equities, bonds, property, alternative assets and cash.
  • You may choose to pay either regular monthly contributions or lump sum payments, or both.
  • Your personal pension plan is set up as a ‘Defined Contribution’ plan. This means that the value of your pension fund when you reach retirement age will depend on the amount you contribute, the performance of the fund and the charging structure. For many people, their pension fund at retirement is often worth more than the value of their home!

Benefits of a Personal Pension:

√        Tax relief on your contributions (subject to certain limits) √        Tax free investement growth
√       Tax free lump sum on retirement (subject to certain limits) √       Peace of mind that you now have a pension target and a plan of action
