Why now is the time to take another look at your UK Pensions

Over recent years many of you will have, in conjunction with your Wealth Manager, looked at your UK pensions to see if you would benefit from moving them to a new arrangement.

At the time you did this, you may have decided not to do so because either:

  • Your Wealth Manager recommended that you retain the pensions you have, as the analysis showed this was in your best interests at the time.
  • You decided not to, as you felt the benefits of a change were not clear cut.

If you haven’t had an Audit of your UK pensions in the last 12 months, it is likely you would benefit from taking another look – why?

  1. Your plans are likely to have evolved, especially now that the world has changed so much
  2. Transfer Values have increased significantly in many cases and this means that you may well be better off if you make changes to your pensions
  3. The AAM UK Pension Audit has evolved from a snapshot of the position at the time it is done, into a lifetime analysis of your pensions, other assets and your retirement plans. This allows you to see immediately if you ‘have enough’ and if you would be better off after a change
  4. In many cases the costs of an alternative pension have fallen

The AAM UK Pension Audit, as well as showing if you have the optimum pension for your circumstances and plans, or if there is a better alternative, will tell you for both your current pensions and any proposed alternative:

  • How much your pensions are worth and what you can expect when you retire
  • Whether your pensions will allow you to take your retirement income when and how you want
  • What the impact of tax will be on your retirement plans
  • Whether you are on track for your perfect retirement
  • If your pension will pay you for all of your life

The combination of lower costs and low interest rates mean that there has never been a better time to consider how your pensions are managed.

If you have a UK Pension, you should have a new UK Pension Audit now.
