What do you imagine when you think of your retirement? Do you see yourself spending more time with your children and grandchildren, or ticking off your travel bucket list?
Do you want to provide for your loved ones’ important events, or invest your time in a cause that you find fulfilling? What if we told you that, with expert Retirement Planning advice, you could afford to live comfortably in your retirement?
It’s easy to put off planning for your retirement, especially if it seems like it’s in the distant future, but delaying your plans could leave you quickly exhausting your pension pot or riskily relying on state pension.
At £125.95 a week, state pension works out at £545.36 a month or £6,549.40 per year*. Workers need to save the equivalent of 66% of their current salary to live comfortably in retirement*. When you put the two figures together, will it give you the fulfilling or comfortable life that you are used to?
Life can still have its surprises, even in retirement, which could put an unnecessary financial burden on you and your family, for example, if you required long term and costly residential care. Proper planning means having the freedom to live out your retirement in the moment, making it something to look forward to.
