Pre & Post Retirement Planning
Retirement planning is an important part of your overall financial planning and normally comes down to two elements. First, planning in advance to help you generate the retirement income you want, and second, planning when you reach your chosen retirement age. This involves organising your assets so that you can achieve the financial returns you need to support the lifestyle you want.
Pensions are currently one of the most tax efficient ways of saving for retirement but due to changes to the pension rules by successive governments, the options available can be extremely confusing. Since the introduction of the new pension freedoms in the 6 April 2015 Budget, there are more options that give you more flexibility about when you can take your pension and what you can do with it. Because of the extensive range of options available, you may well need retirement planning advice. For example, whilst options such as income drawdown offer a great deal of flexibility, you need professional guidance to be aware of the risks.
