Boost your pension

Take control of your future

It's your pension, and it's up to you to make sure you save enough to give you the lifestyle you want when you stop working.

Doing nothing now could mean you live the life you can afford rather than the life you want in retirement. But you don't have to be a financial expert, there are simple things you can do to give your pension a boost.

 

 Pay more, get more

Remember that your employer is currently paying in to your pension and you're getting tax benefits from HMRC. So even changing your payments by a small amount can have a significant impact on the final amount you get.

 Combine your pensions

Got pensions with different providers? Did you know you can combine them all together in one place?

 Review your investments

The money you pay into your pension is invested to give it the potential to grow. Understand how investments work and why they're important for your pension.

 Manage your pension online

You don’t have to wait for your yearly pension statement - you can keep in touch with your pension online.

 
 

 Remember

Your pension is normally a long term investment and you usually can't withdraw money until the age of 55 (may be subject to change). As with any investment, the value can go down as well as up and may be worth less than what was paid in.
