Pensions – How much should I save?

It’s one of the most common questions people ask – and the answer depends on your circumstances. Your current age, your salary, and your planned retirement age, along with other factors, will help determine how much you should save each month.

Retirement brings a big change in lifestyle. Your commuting and electricity bills could fall significantly, but your health expenses may increase. You may eat out less often, but you may wish to travel more frequently. How you wish to spend your retirement years will inform how much you should put into your pension.


When you retire you may be eligible for certain benefits, such as a tax-free lump sum. The benefits available to you depend on the kind of pension you have taken out and the tax arrangements at the time of your retirement. Your financial advisor will be able to take you through the various options available.
