Find a financial adviser
When it comes to saving for a pension, there are many aspects that you may be able to do yourself if you research them carefully, including using the information on this site. But making the wrong decisions can come at a high price. It’s worth getting financial advice if you’re thinking about:
- The type of pension product that best suits your needs;
- Decisions in the run-up to retirement;
- Decisions about an annuity;
- Switching from a defined benefit to a defined contribution pension scheme.
If you buy a personal pension product based on financial advice, you know you’re getting a product that matches your needs and circumstances. You may even get access to a wider range of choices than you’d be able to assess realistically on your own.
You’ll need to pay fees (not commission) for financial adviser support. Keep this cost in perspective − it may not be much more than a visit from the plumber or a full service for your car. And if it helps you to build the financial future you want, it’s money well spent.
