Retirement Planning

We think differently about retirement than most, 20 years of experience has aided us in seeing the evolution of ‘retirement’ and less and less is retirement about fully stopping work. For Becketts a retirement plan is about giving you freedom, freedom to choose and freedom to be confident in the choices you make.

Financial freedom allows you to be unburdened to retire in whatever format that is, be it part-time work, a sabbatical for a round the world trip, taking on a voluntary position, a governors or non-executive role or like many stopping work fully. 

Our retirement planning focuses on this, creating bespoke financial freedom constructed around the future you want. 

Inevitably retirement planning will involve pensions, there are many different types of pension which are subject to different rules always surrounded by jargon and complexity. We will cut through this headache using plain English to show the underlying benefits and uses a pension may have now and how that will fit into your retirement plan.  

With recent changes to the State Pension meaning it now commences at a later age and Final Salary Schemes becoming less and less common with employers, it is more important than ever to plan for you no longer have a salary. Pensions are a great vehicle to prepare for retirement because of the tax benefits they provide. Tax relief is available on most pension contributions, enhancing the growth of your pension pot.

The result is a retirement free from financial worries .

Pensions - Independent advice for a secure future

The available choice of pensions is so great that it can lead to uncertainty, and even confusion. How can you be certain that you’re making the right decisions and removing unnecessary risk from your financial future? Our role is to understand your personal financial situation, retirement plans and expectations in order to select the most suitable option for you.
