It’s Never Too Early to Plan Your retirement

Depending on your age and indeed outlook, the subject of pensions will illicit a different response from different people. In reality it’s a subject we should all be conscious of throughout out working lives.

Plan your retirement when young

Plan your retirement when young

If you are young and reading this, congratulations! First, for reading about pensions, which can be a challenge,  but secondly because you have an opportunity to start your retirement planning early. Too many young people don’t consider a pensions plan or indeed a retirement plan until later in life. This is of course a mistake, as the earlier you start the more likely it will be for you to retire and maintain the lifestyle you’re used to.

Some people push the issue to one side because they are enrolled in their employers work place pension scheme. It’s easy to forget about, as it’s simply deducted from each pay cheque. As your career or jobs change, you may accumulate several pensions, some you may even forget about.

At some point though, you will start thinking about what you’d like to do once that golden retirement age is reached. And you really do want it to be a ‘golden event,’ don’t you? The prospect of scrimping and saving each day of your retirement isn’t a pleasant thought, nor need it be.

It’s a fact that we are all living longer. The average age expectancy of somebody who reaches 65 is now 86 for women and 83 for men. How much money do you think you need in a pension fund to secure the lifestyle you desire for twenty years of retirement?

Independent Pensions Advice for couplesTypically, to receive £12,000 pounds a year from an annuity – a thousand pounds a month, you need a pensions fund of around £400,000. Think about that for a moment. Can you live off of £1000 per month along with whatever the state benefit will provide at the time. It’s currently £440 per month  (£110 per week). It is certainly possible to live off this, especially if you have no outstanding mortgages. But is that what you want?

You may already be aware that the government is conscious of the fact that people are not saving enough for retirement. Concerned that in coming years the state benefits system will be strained to breaking, they are forcing companies to make work place pensions schemes available to all and ensuring people join those schemes or make other arrangements.
