When it comes to retirement planning, pensions are a small part of the decision process.
Retirement planning is about looking at how you live your life now, how you would like to live your life in the future and how together these goals can be achieved.
MN Consultancy is here to helping you clarify your goals, both now and in the future, we can help you prepare for a fulfilling life after work.
In April 2015 there was significant reforms surrounding withdrawing and inheriting pensions, which represent the biggest changes to pension legislation in over a century. Used appropriately, the new rules could make a significant difference to you, your beneficiaries and future generations of your family.
Often a pension fund is the largest investment an individual will have, yet without appropriate planning, many people could outlive their savings. The new reforms put financial control in the hands of the retiree, but faced with more freedom of choice, many people may struggle to make the right decisions and be left with less income that originally planned as a result.
When the big picture is taken into account, considering pension investment options as well as the three main taxes being Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax, the right retirement income solution for one individual could prove comparatively disastrous for another and their beneficiaries.
