It can be difficult knowing when to start saving and how much to save, so people ignore it and put it off. If it helps start saving today as the sooner the better and as for how much try this: Work out how much money you think you will need after you retire. Then plan to save that amount. It could be £40,000 every year for 20 years, so £800,000. Don’t forget inflation! Or even better come and speak to us and we will help you to go through it all in detail.
Once you retire from work, you need to replace your income from working for an income from your retirement savings. There are different ways of doing this. It could be that you look to purchase an Annuity, giving you a secure income for life. The right advice at this point is crucial as there are so many variations and your personal situation can alter the amount payable quite dramatically. Health and lifestyle factors all determine the amount of income paid out, so if you’ve suffered all your life with Asthma for example, this can work in your favour when purchasing an Annuity.
Another method of taking income is through draw-down. This allows you to remain invested in the markets if you wish and also allows more flexibility in income levels year on year. This is a complex strategy and the correct advice is crucial. Happily we are on hand to guide you through it step by step.
