Retirement

Your retirement is really important - you could be retired for 20 years or more. Deciding what to do with your retirement pot is a big decision and you should think carefully about what’s right for you.

Even if you’re a long way off from retirement, the decisions you make now can make a big difference to how much you’ll get when you take your money out of NEST.  Some things within your control that could have a big effect on your retirement income are:

  • how many years you save for
  • how much your regular contributions are
  • how old you are when you take your money out of NEST

Make a difference to what you can get

You should think carefully about when you want to start taking money from your pot. At 55 you’ll probably still be working. If you put off taking your money out:

  • you’ll be able to keep adding to your retirement pot
  • you could also continue to get employer contributions and tax relief
  • your savings will have more time to grow.
