Who gets my retirement income? Help for who gets my retirement income

You can get a retirement income until you die, but you can also make sure your spouse or partner has a retirement income after you die.

Would you like to guarantee that your retirement income will be paid for 10 years? Help for would you like your retirement income guaranteed for 10 years

If you choose to have a guaranteed retirement income it means your retirement income will definitely be paid out for 10 years, even if you die before the 10 years is up. You choose who gets this income when you set up your retirement income.

Do you want your pension to increase in line with inflation each year? Help for do you want your pension to increase in line with inflation each year

If your retirement income is a fixed amount, the buying power of your retirement income will probably go down because of the effect of inflation. Getting an income that increases over time helps protect you against this.

Always remember

Your actual retirement income will depend on several things, including the total amount of contributions paid in, how your investments perform and the cost of getting a retirement income when you take your money out.
