Planning for retirement

The concept of retirement has changed hugely in recent years. Whereas people used to work for several decades and then stop abruptly, the fact that we are living longer than before means many of us are either working for longer or looking at ways we might be able to phase our retirement. Here are some of the things that you may want to consider when planning for retirement.

Your options at retirement

Pension freedom rules introduced in 2015 mean that we now have a much wider range of options available to us when it comes to how our pensions can provide us with an income. Here, we explain what those options are, and some of the things you’ll need to consider when choosing which of them is right for you.

Early retirement

Some of us plan to retire early, whilst others have to take early retirement, perhaps because they’ve been made redundant or are unwell and no longer able to work. Find out how to manage your finances if you want to retire early, and how to get by if you’re pushed into early retirement and are worried about making ends meet.
