Pensions

Many people think when it comes to pension planning it is too complex and they are doing too little too late. We can show this is not necessarily the case.

As longevity increases and state provision reduces in real terms, the issue of whether people will have enough income in retirement is one which will inevitably continue to grow in importance. Retirement is supposed to be the time to relax and enjoy the benefits. But often expert help is needed to identify the best pension scheme, and to ensure the required income upon retirement.

At Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers our pensions experts provide professional independent financial advice on which is the best option for you from the following options:

  • Stakeholder Pensions versus Self-Invested Personal Pension Schemes (SIPPs)
  • Corporate pensions planning, including SSASs and Personal Accounts
  • Drawdown Plans (now called Unsecured Pensions) versus Annuities
  • Pension Transfer Planning (including Section 32s)

Whether you are thinking of starting a pension, looking to transfer an existing pension to a better performing one or have a pension which is about to mature, contact us today to book a free appointment with our expert personal pensions advisor.
