Income in Retirement
Building up a retirement fund throughout your life isn’t always easy, but once you have managed to secure a reasonable fund and you’re considering taking your benefits, it becomes very important that the right choices are made.
Also In This Section:
An Annuity is a guaranteed fixed income which you buy with a lump sum; its term may be to a fixed date, when you die or when your spouse or another named person dies.
When you come to retirement, it might be tempting to choose the first fixed rate, level annuity quote you receive but with life expectancy increasing, your annuity might have to pay out for considerably longer and your needs may change over time therefore it is sensible to shop around.
Do you know what your options are?
- How long do you need your money to last?
- How much income will you need today and later on in retirement?
- How can you inflation proof your income?
- Should you keep the pension fund invested?
- What about your loved ones, could you use your pension to provide for them when you are gone?

The value of investments can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than you invested.
