Workplace & Private Pensions

If you work with an organisation, they should have a workplace (occupational/company) pension scheme that you can utilise. The main benefits of this is that the employer usually makes contributions into your pension as well as you.

For private (personal or stakeholder) pension schemes, you can choose from the range of pension schemes on offer to the general public. You would be wise to utilise the services of an independent financial advisor before doing this.
