Saving for retirement

There have been many changes to the pension industry in recent years, including to the State Pension and the implementation of Auto Enrolment. The need to save into a pension has never been greater.

One of Birkett Long IFA’s financial planning managers can help you choose the most appropriate pension plan in line with your objectives and attitude to risk, whether you are a business owner and need advice on pensions, or an individual looking to set up a pension, including Self Invested Personal Pensions. We can also review your existing pension arrangements.

  • When should I start contributing to a pension?
  • How much can I invest in a pension each year?
  • How much pension savings will I need to retain?
